Readers get much more than they bargained for in this must-read: a thriller whodunit from the past; characters who will keep your eyes glued to the page; a couple whose passion rises off the pages like heat off the pavement in the summer sun; and a mystery that won’t be solved until the very end.
Quiet Pineview is not without its darker side, like the crime spree that recently engulfed it. But the case that’s kept Claire O’Toole in its grasp is much older and closer to home. Her mother Alana went missing 15 years ago, and her husband died one year ago — just after he started looking into Alana’s disappearance. Claire is more determined than ever to find out what happened to her mother, and she’s allowed her former lover Isaac Morgan back into her life for his help. But the closer they get to answers the more questions they uncover and the more dangerous it becomes, until they have no one but themselves to rely on. Isaac is determined to keep Claire safe and in his arms for good this time, but only if he can keep them alive. (MIRA, Nov., 400 pp., $7.99)
