In Thriller Award–finalist Norton’s riveting sequel to 2013’s The Edge of Normal, U.C. Berkeley student Reeve LeClaire, who was kidnapped and held captive in Seattle for four years as a teen, is yanked back into her past after her abductor, Daryl Wayne Flint, escapes from the Washington State psychiatric hospital where he’s serving his sentence. Believing she knows Daryl better than any of the authorities and feeling responsible for finding Daryl before he can hurt anyone else, she returns to Seattle, despite her family’s adamant advice not to put herself in jeopardy once again. To apprehend Daryl, she reconnects with retired FBI special agent Milo Bender, whom she fondly remembers from the time he was assigned to stay with her during Daryl’s trial. Meanwhile, Daryl, who has been obsessed with Reeve throughout his hospital stay, sets off on a rampage of murder and kidnapping, until events reach their climax in an exciting and suspenseful conclusion. Agent: Liza Dawson, Liza Dawson Associates. (June)
