Look Inside

Riley Svenson has reluctantly returned to her rural hometown when her brother’s fiancée is mysteriously murdered, and as her brother becomes the prime suspect, Riley must push aside all of her looming medical symptoms to hunt down the real killer.


“An author to watch . . .” —Booklist

“A standout debut!” —Erin Flanagan, Edgar Award-winning author of Come with Me

When murder hits home.

Long distance runner Riley has been fighting various bewildering symptoms for months, from vertigo to fainting spells. Worse, her doctors can’t tell her what’s wrong, leaving her to wonder if it’s stress or something more threatening. But when her brother’s fiancée is killed—and he becomes the prime suspect—Riley must prove his innocence, despite the toll on her health.

As she reacquaints herself with the familiar houses and wild woods of her childhood, the secrets she uncovers take her on a trail to the real killer that leads right back to the very people she knows best and loves most.

For readers who enjoy Deer Season by Erin Flanagan, All Good People Here by Ashley Flowers, and A Flicker in the Dark by Stacy Willingham.
