The Shimmer

Carsten Stroud. Mira, $26.99 (304p) ISBN 978-0-7783-3122-3
At the start of this adrenaline-filled supernatural thriller from bestseller Stroud (the Niceville trilogy), Sgt. Jack Redding of the Florida Highway Patrol chases a speeding truck, whose driver, serial killer Selena D’Arcy, eventually pulls over and escapes into the surrounding woods. Selena and members of a crime family later break into Jack’s home and get into a gunfight with him. When Selena runs toward a shimmering light, she travels back in time 61 years to 1957 with Jack on her tail. Jack finds himself in the backseat of a police car belonging to his grandfather, Clete Redding, who’s also pursuing Selena. This situation presents Jack with a harrowing decision: whether to help Clete catch Selena or try to alter the past to save the lives of his wife and four-year-old daughter, who died in a car crash in 2017. Each choice has potentially grave repercussions for Jack and the people he cares for. Fans of Stephen King’s 11/22/63 will find a lot to like. Agent: Barney Karpfinger, Karpfinger Agency. (June)
