'Wow! Chilling, smart, funny, and what a voice she has' Gillian Flynn
'A twisting, high-stakes story . . . Brilliant' Shari Lapena, author of The Couple Next Door
Former FBI agent Brigid Quinn has seen it all, and survived. But nothing can cut her closer to the bone than family...
When her father falls ill, Brigid returns to Florida. There, she meets up with former colleague Laura Coleman. Laura once saved Brigid's life, but now is working on an 'innocence project', investigating cold cases, and one in particular has caught her attention. Marcus Creighton was convicted of murdering his family fifteen years before, and has been sentenced to death.
Worried that her friend is getting in too deep, and that there is more to this case than meets the eye, Brigid promises to help. But what if her instincts are betraying her?
Edgar-finalist Masterman presents a compassionate, clear-eyed depiction of the painful foibles of human nature in her chilling, twist-filled third thriller featuring retired FBI agent Brigid Quinn (after 2015's Fear the Darkness). Brigid flies from Phoenix to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to be with her mother after her 83-year-old father is hospitalized. While there, Brigid is contacted by former colleague Laura Coleman, an Innocence Project investigator, who asks Brigid to help her exonerate death row inmate Marcus Creighton. Fifteen years earlier, Creighton was convicted of killing his wife; his three children have been missing since the night of the murder. The execution date is set, and time is running out. The problem is that Brigid believes that Creighton is probably guilty. Still, Brigid wants to help Laura, and the distraction of an investigation is just the thing to take her mind off her complicated family relationships. A compelling, complex lead, Brigid has no problem skirting the straight and narrow in her quest for justice.
