A woman investigates the mysterious death of her mother in Santa Fe in this New York Times bestseller by a “master of suspense” (Mary Higgins Clark).
Between jobs and relationships, Manhattan illustrator Amanda Austin decides it’s finally time to take her grandfather up on his request to visit him in Santa Fe. Near death and anxious to reconnect with his granddaughter, Juan Cordova has summoned her to New Mexico so she can get to know her late mother’s relatives. Amanda hasn’t been back since she was five years old, when her mother died under mysterious circumstances—a tragedy no one has spoken of since.
One thing’s certain: This isn’t going to be a pleasant reunion. In the cold and gloomy Spanish hacienda that guards its secrets like a tomb, Amanda is greeted by all like an unwelcome guest. Only when she investigates on her own does she begin to fear the real reason why she was asked here. It isn’t to explore the past, but to bury it for good. Now Amanda’s life is on the line in this house of flesh-and-blood strangers—because one of them is a killer.
The Turquoise Mask is a chilling tale of suspense from the Edgar Award–winning author the New York Times called “the queen of the American gothics.”
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Phyllis A. Whitney including rare images from the author’s estate.
