Megatalent Dodd returns with a truly stunning work of mystery, danger and romance. Dodd enhances this new tale with a ghostly presence. Heroine Elizabeth Banner is brilliant, prickly and damaged by tragedy, but also utterly compelling. Dodd has always been a terrific author, but she kicks it into a whole new realm with this amazing and terrifying novel!
For more than two decades geologist Elizabeth Banner believed that her father murdered her mother, Misty. Elizabeth has returned to Virtue Falls for a project, and is there when a massive earthquake and tsunami occur in a manner predicted by both her and her father’s work. The earthquake uncovers Misty’s missing bones. Elizabeth’s ex-husband, disgraced FBI agent Garik Jacobsen, races to Virtue Falls to help Elizabeth in the aftermath. When a serial killer strikes, it calls into question Misty’s murder. Are Elizabeth’s memories inaccurate? Will she now become a target? (ST. MARTIN’S, Sep., 448 pp., $25.99)
