Product description

Review

From Publishers Weekly
"Starred Review," In Cain's superb follow-up to "Heartsick," damaged detective Archie Sheridan is back home in Portland, Ore., trying to resume a normal life. Archie's ties to serial killer Gretchen Lowell still run deep, even if he's stopped their weekly visits in prison. Meanwhile, reporter Susan Ward is finishing an article accusing a beloved U.S. senator of seducing his children's 14-year-old babysitter a decade earlier. When three bodies are discovered in a local park where Archie's team found Gretchen's first victim 12 years earlier Archie worries another serial killer is at large. After the senator's unexpected death, Susan discovers links between the sex scandal and the bodies in the park. When Gretchen escapes from prison, Archie knows he's the only one who can stop her from killing. In Cain's capable hands, Gretchen is both a monster and the only person who truly understands Archie's pain. With its brisk pacing, carefully metered violence and tortured hero, Cain's sophomore effort will leave readers desperate for more. "(Sept.)"

Praise for "Heartsick" and Chelsea Cain
"A dizzying novel. Lurid and suspenseful with well-drawn characters, plenty of grisly surprises and tart dialogue, it delivers."
--"The New York Times Book Review"
"Highly flawed but intelligent characters, a unique killer and a setting that complements a grizzly story line make this a novel mystery lovers can't afford to miss."
--"USA Today"
"In her dynamite first thriller, Cain introduces one of the most seductive and original psychopaths since HannibalLecter."
--"Entertainment Weekly"
""Heartsick" is worth all the hype... brilliant."
--"New York Post"
"A vivid literary style lifts this well above the usual run of suspense novels.... Outstanding."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"With Gretchen Lowell, Chelsea Cain gives us the most compelling, most original serial killer since Hannibal Lecter."
--Chuck Palahniuk
""Heartsick" has it all: a tortured cop, a fearless and quirky heroine, and what may be the creepiest serial killer ever created. This is an addictive read!"
--Tess Gerritsen
