From the Editor

I’m thrilled about Hilary Davidson’s new series. Her writing is so fresh and engaging. Harlan Coben says One Small Sacrifice is Hilary’s “best work yet,” and I couldn’t agree more.

NYPD detective Sheryn Sterling knows there’s more to an old case that was ruled a suicide. She can’t shake the feeling that there’s more to Alex Traynor, the dead girl’s friend, than meets the eye. There is something about him that sparks a deep intuition—intuition she’s come to trust on the job. Now Traynor’s fiancée has gone missing, and Sterling won’t rest until she uncovers the truth about him and finds the missing woman. But the more Sterling digs into the investigation, the more she realizes nothing is what it seems. She’ll have to look past everything she thinks she knows to see the reality.

One Small Sacrifice grabs you from page one and won’t let go. Detective Sheryn Sterling is the kind of character you root for and admire—ruthless in her fight against New York City crime. I was propelled through the pages, following the twists and turns as Sterling unearthed secret after secret.

- Megha Parekh, Editor

Product description

Product Description

An apparent suicide. A mysterious disappearance. Did one man get away with murder—twice?

NYPD detective Sheryn Sterling has had her eye on Alex Traynor ever since his friend Cori fell to her death under suspicious circumstances a year ago. Cori’s death was ruled a suicide, but Sheryn thinks Alex—a wartime photojournalist suffering from PTSD—got away with murder.

When Alex’s fiancée, Emily, a talented and beloved local doctor, suddenly goes missing, Sheryn suspects that Alex is again at the center of a sticky case. Sheryn dislikes loose ends, and Cori’s death had way too many of them.

But as Sheryn starts pulling at the threads in this web, her whole theory unravels. Everyone involved remembers the night Cori died differently—and the truth about her death could be the key to solving Emily’s disappearance.
