This chilling stand-alone suspense thriller from bestseller Jackson (Without Mercy) brings every parent’s biggest fear to life—the disappearance of one’s child. Nightmare-plagued Ava Garrison still can’t remember the details of the night her two-year-old son, Noah, went missing from her Washington State island home two years ago, but her memory is starting to return now that she’s stopped taking the medications she believes contribute to her nightmares. To add to her woes, Ava suspects her shifty husband, Wyatt, is cheating on her with her therapist. Even worse, Ava must prove her innocence after she becomes a prime suspect in a string of brutal murders. Fortunately, she can turn for help to rugged stable hand Austin Dern, who rescues her after she takes a plunge off the dock from which Noah may have fallen the night he disappeared. Multiple red herrings and a host of sinister characters help keep the pages turning until the explosive conclusion. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Aug.)
