A captivating novel of political scandal, about men in power and the women who love them.
April Wayne, 23 years old, is interning for a charismatic senator from California. When she disappears one night, suspicion falls on the senator who was the last one to see her. When the media learn that the two were supposedly having affair, he becomes their prime suspect.
INTERN tells April’s story, and the senator’s, but it also tells the story of the two women forced into the spotlight as a result of the disappearance. It is the story of April's mother, Gloria, who becomes consumed with finding her daughter, while her husband descends into a paralyzing depression. It is also the story of Suzanne, the senator's dutiful wife, who has to confront the shocking truth about the man to whom she has devoted her life.
INTERN is rich and layered page-turner you won’t be able to put down.

Although Hill's debut thriller owes much to the Gary Condit political scandal, she creates more than enough suspense to keep readers intrigued. April Wayne, 23, disappears without a trace while interning for California State Sen. Eric Barry. When the media learn that the senator was the last person to be seen with April and that the two were supposedly having an affair, he becomes their prime suspect. April's parents, Gloria and Jack Wayne, are shocked by the news of their daughter's disappearance and affair, which drives a wedge between them. Gloria becomes consumed with finding April, while Jack descends into a paralyzing depression. Senator Barry worries more about his next election than about April. Suzanne Barry, who has always been loyal to her husband, is overcome with doubt about their life together when she learns that he has been unfaithful. "He gives me one of his dazzlers across the table. I want to believe in the face, the eyes, the voice, but I can't." Suzanne's naivete is implausible, but Hill skillfully draws subtle parallels between Suzanne and Gloria as they both deal with their devastating anxieties and scolding consciences. The resolution may be a bit lurid for some tastes, but that won't make it any easier to put this page-turner down.
