What would you do to protect your family? Keep a secret. Tell a lie. Take your life?
Five years after botching the Gabriel Wheeler abduction case, Detective Harvey Sam faces the second major case of his career. An asthmatic mother, Gillian, eats peanut butter before surgery—and dies on the operating table as planned. Her suicide ends an abusive affair and is meant to provide for her family through a malpractice settlement. Instead, Gillian’s husband, her teenage son, and a doctor with a multiple personality disorder, must flee for their lives. They are pursued by the doctor’s husband, the psychopathic lover who drove Gillian to her death.
Strange Lineup explores power imbalances between men, women and children and the alternative realities some young victims create to survive. Both as a standalone novel and as Book 2 in the Missing & Exploited Suspense Series, Strange Lineup delivers intense psychological suspense.
