From the award-winning author of Little Pretty Things comes this gripping, unforgettable tale of a mother's desperate search for a lost boy.
Anna Winger can know people better than they know themselves with only a glance - at their handwriting. Hired out by companies wanting to land trustworthy employees and by the lovelorn hoping to find happiness, Anna likes to keep the real-life messes of other people at arm's length and on paper. But when she is called to use her expertise on a note left behind at a murder scene in the small town she and her son have recently moved to, the crime gets under Anna's skin and rips open her narrow life for all to see. To save her son - and herself - once and for all, Anna will face her every fear, her every mistake, and the past she thought she'd rewritten.
"[Narrator Hillary] Huber captures the personalities of the diverse characters, who are full of grit and determination, especially the women.... Huber's smoky voice is perfect for this carefully unfolding psychological thriller." (AudioFile)

Best Rader Day Novel Yet!
This is the only novel I have listened to on Audible, but I have read (a physical copy) a few books like this (mystery horror genre with a female lead), and it ranks very well among them. It is beautifully written, insightful, nuanced, and critically and politically insightful while still be narrative, plot, and character driven. Excellent book.
The story was interesting but not overly dramatic; it was believable, real, but always captivating.
Excellent narrator. Best Narrative I have heard thus far. She completely captures the character and brings the story to life. Amazing.
