  • “Gripping, suspenseful read —Booklist

  • “Dark and swiftly moving, both a thriller and an examination of how deep a connection can be. —Kirkus Reviews

The Beautiful Risk is a story of the collateral damage of grief, the adrenalin of revenge; it’s the story of corruption and greed, of ecoterrorism. Above all, it is a romantic thriller, a love story, a tale of courage and of mending a broken heart.

It’s the story of a woman who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth.

Because when you don’t care if you live or die . . . you are always the most dangerous person in the room.

The house is waiting… In the Amish countryside of Kentucky, there is a house. Everyone knows about it. They whisper about the things that happen there. Creepy things. Terrible things. It would be better if they shouted: Run.

Two months ago, fragile mother of two Pammie LaRue moved in with her beloved partner Conor. They ignored the knocks on the walls. Whispering voices. Water pooling, with no obvious leak.

Eight days ago, Conor went missing, without a trace. Unless you count the drag marks in the crawl space under the house . . .
