"Perfect for fans of Ruth Ware and Paula Hawkins, Pamela Crane introduces a mind-twist that takes everything you love about thrillers, pushes it outside the box, and electrifies you with clever prose and a plot that will terrify you. A must-read thriller...” – Southern Editor Reviews

A life no girl should endure. A father no daughter could love. A twist no one would predict.

From USA Today best-selling author Pamela Crane comes a terrifying tale of small-town secrets and murder.

Ari Wilburn’s life ended long ago—the day she watched her little sister die in a tragic accident and did nothing to stop it. Crippled with self-blame and resented by her parents, she stumbles through life ... and onto an unexpected clue that casts doubt on whether the death was accidental.

Now a psychological wreck, Ari joins a suicide support group where she meets Tina, a sex-enslaved escapee who finds her long-lost father dead. Suicide, police ruled it. But Tina suspects foul play. As a bond develops between the women in their shared loss, they’re dragged into playing a dangerous game with a killer.

A serial killer with a deadly message.

Faced with a murderous wake-up call and two possibly linked deaths, Ari’s investigation puts her next on the killer’s list. But she’s never been one to back down from a fight.

Needing closure, Ari must face her demons and the killer behind them ... or lose everything she loves.

About the author

PAMELA CRANE is a professional juggler. Not the type of juggler who can toss flaming torches in the air, but a juggler of four kids, a writing addiction, a horse rescuer, and a book editor by trade. She lives on the edge (ask her Arabian horse about that—he’ll tell you all about their wild adventures while trying to train him) and she writes on the edge. Writing murder mysteries is her escape from the real world of dirty diapers and cleaning horse stalls, and she bases her characters on real people, so be warned!

She is a USA Today best-selling author of several award-winning thrillers: Pretty Ugly Lies, A Fatal Affair, and The Admirer's Secret. She has also written the chilling Little Things That Kill Series, which includes The Scream of Silence, The Art of Fear, and The Death of Life, and The Killer Thriller Series, including A Secondhand Lie and A Secondhand Life, which you can find on her website at www.pamelacrane.com.

See why Pamela's fans on Goodreads say, "Pamela Crane writes with passion; you can feel the emotions and inner feelings of her characters," and "She's an author that grabbed my attention."

A kidnapped baby. A mother’s will to find her. A killer targeting them both.

By USA Today best-selling author Pamela Crane comes a psychological thriller critics are calling "a literary ride that you'll sink your teeth into and savor until the last chilling page." Perfect for fans of Tess Gerritsen and C.J. Box.

Three years ago Tina Alvarez was trapped in a sex-trafficking ring. Three years ago she bore a daughter who was sold on the black market. But three years didn’t erase her tenacity to get her little girl back ... and get even with the ones who took her.

When rookie private investigator Ari Wilburn accepts her first case to find Tina’s long-lost daughter, Ari unravels a mystery bigger than a missing child lead. A serial killer is targeting people close to her, and the key to who—and why—is buried deep in her past. As the investigation puts her in the killer’s crosshairs, Ari must decide between saving herself or guarding her family’s grisly secrets.

But for Ari it’s not easy being a savior. Bringing Tina’s daughter back means taking the child from the only family she knows. Is reuniting Tina with her little girl worth destroying this child’s life, and possibly her own?

A killer is watching. Plotting. Can Ari stop the death toll before she’s next?

A private investigator crime fiction story for fans of J.D. Robb, Brad Meltzer, and Melinda Leigh.

“An intensifying thriller and investigative mystery. Should a mother be reunited with her kidnapped child if the child is better off without her? The story raises interesting questions that will get you thinking. And the twist ending...you won’t see it coming. If you like I Am Watching You, Lies That Bind Us, or Sometimes I Lie, you’ll love The Death of Life.” – reader review
Now a national best-seller!

A standalone psychological drama about the masks we wear and the love that can destroy us.

Secrets are like dead bodies. They’re better left buried.

No one knows this better than Haley Montgomery, a woman haunted by loss. First her father, then her best friend. But when a woman’s body is found—and her death connected to the man Haley loves—is it a tragic accident, or murder?

Searching for answers that lead her into a disturbing revelation about her idyllic small town and her family, Haley is forced to dig into her past. But the closer she gets to the truth, the more she risks. Chilling letters threaten to unearth her skeletons, unraveling a haunting childhood secret that decades later still consumes her. A secret that could shatter everything she’s tried so hard to bury. A secret that could cost her life.

But secrets aren’t the only things getting buried as an obsession soon turns lethal.

The Admirer’s Secret is a brilliant domestic noir thriller perfect for fans of BA Paris, KL Slater, and Teresa Driscoll’s I Am Watching You.
