Karen Wiley, recently qualified San Francisco psychologist, thought she understood moral dilemma. Then an anonymous child cries to her for help. No one Karen knows is in trouble. But the letters keep coming. Then something far, far worse.
Until the horror in the Trueblood trailer, Ella McCullers, police chief of Canaan, Utah, believed she knew crises of faith. Abruptly promoted to senior investigator in the state's most high-profile kidnapping case, her only leads are a decaying tombstone, a missing cat, and a little mute girl with ghastly, formless nightmares.
In truth, it began with The Cult of the Final Days, and a long-buried history of murder. Now Karen Wiley must cross the desert wilderness to play a deadly game disguised as a righteous quest for the truth.
Powerful, hypnotic and terrifying, The Final Days is the stunning debut by a chillingly brilliant new voice in thriller writing.
