From Nora Roberts comes the #1 New York Times bestseller Shelter in Place (June 2018)—a powerful tale of heart, heroism...and propulsive suspense.
It was a typical evening at a mall outside Portland, Maine. Three teenage friends waited for the movie to start. A boy flirted with the girl selling sunglasses. Mothers and children shopped together, and the manager at video game store tended to customers. Then the shooters arrived.
The chaos and carnage lasted only eight minutes before the killers were taken down. But for those who lived through it, the effects would last forever. In the years that followed, one would dedicate himself to a law enforcement career. Another would close herself off, trying to bury the memory of huddling in a ladies' room, helplessly clutching her cell phone--until she finally found a way to pour her emotions into her art.
But one person wasn't satisfied with the shockingly high death toll at the DownEast Mall. And as the survivors slowly heal, find shelter, and rebuild, they will discover that another conspirator is lying in wait--and this time, there might be nowhere safe to hide.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Shelter in Place starts with a horrific event: a mass shooting at a suburban shopping mall. That violence launches a gripping story that weaves together family drama, neighborhood conflict, and steamy romance. Rather than sensationalizing this violence, bestselling author Nora Roberts shows how the tragedy ripples through the lives of those who were there. The emotional soul-searching of her vivid characters unfolds via snappy dialogue and frank confessions, creating a world that feels uncomfortably relatable even as we grapple with unimaginable tragedy.
