The brilliant, fearless, deeply flawed Nora WattsA??introduced in the "utterly compelling" (Jeffery Deaver) atmospheric thriller The Lost OnesA??finds deadly trouble as she searches for the truth about her late father in this immersive thriller that moves from the hazy Canadian Pacific Northwest to the gritty, hollowed streets of Detroit.
Growing up, Nora Watts only knew one parentA??her father. When he killed himself, she denied her grief and carried on with her life. Then a chance encounter with a veteran who knew him raises disturbing questions Nora canA??t ignoreA??and dark emotions she canA??t control. To make her peace with the past, she has to confront it.
Finding the truth about her fatherA??s life and his violent death takes her from Vancouver to Detroit where Sam Watts grew up, far away from his people and the place of his birth. Thanks to a disastrous government policy starting in the 1950s, thousands of Canadian native children like Sam were adopted by American families. In the Motor City, Nora discovers that the circumstances surrounding SamA??s suicide are more unsettling than sheA??d imagined.
Yet no matter how far away Nora gets from Vancouver, she canA??t shake trouble. Back in the Pacific Northwest, former police detective turned private investigator Jon Brazuca is looking into the overdose death of a billionaireA??s mistress. His search uncovers a ruthless opiate ring and a startling connection to Nora, the infuriatingly distant woman heA??d once tried to befriend. He has no way to warn or protect her, because sheA??s become a ghost, vanishing completely off the grid.
Focused on the mysterious events of her fatherA??s past and the clues they provide to her own fractured identity and that of her estranged daughter, Nora may not be able to see the danger heading her way until itA??s too late. But itA??s not her fatherA??s old ties that could get her killedA??itA??s her own.

"Nora Watts is back in a second book, after THE LOST ONES, that gets more personal and violent. Bahni Turpin is a capable narrator for this thriller about a female crime fighter who's out to settle old scores. Turpin's narration is contemplative as she recounts Nora's inner turmoil over her discovery that the death of her father may not have been suicide. Turpin takes listeners through the twists and turns of Nora's search for justice using steady, precise sentences. Fans of crime thrillers will welcome the subplot that brings Nora's personal and professional lives together. As the story moves from Canada to the U.S., listeners are guided by Turpin's confident delivery. M.R. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
