Bush’s (Hush) pulse-pounding thriller takes readers on a journey two decades in the making. Olivia “Liv” Dugan was just six years old when she found her mother’s lifeless body swinging from a noose in the kitchen. Fast-forward to Liv at 25, when she receives a package her mother left in trust for her. Childhood pictures, a birth certificate, and a cryptic note compel Liv to uncover her mother’s secrets, but someone is just as determined to keep her in the dark. As everyone who has come into contact with the package is murdered, Liv doesn’t know where to turn. She doesn’t trust the police—but when she carjacks a random Jeep, Det. August Rafferty is in the driver’s seat, and he allows her to kidnap him while trying to figure out how he can help her. Together, the two unravel the tangled, shocking truth . Plenty of suspense and a dollop of romance give this broad appeal. (Aug.)
