This is an author who really deserves more readers. Her characters are incredibly emotionally involving and there are moments that are truly heart wrenching. Her plots and sub plots are cleverly, sometimes intricately done but not so much so that you lose the thread.

Meet Lily Quinn. She is broke, struggling to finish college, pay her rent, find love. Adrift in bustling New York City, the most interesting things in Lily’s life happen to the people around her. But Lily loves her aimless life … until her best friend and roommate Amy disappears. That’s when Spencer Patrick O’Malley, a cynical, past his prime NYPD detective with demons of his own, enters Lily’s world. And a sudden financial windfall which should bring Lily joy instead becomes an ominous portent of the dark forces gathering around her.
But fate isn’t finished with Lily.
She finds herself fighting for her life as Spencer’s search for the missing Amy intensifies, leading Lily to question everything she knew about her friend and family. Startling revelations about the people she loves force her to confront truths that will leave her changed forever.
From a master storyteller comes a new heart-wrenching, magnificent and unputdownable novel.
This is the odyssey of two young women, Lily and Amy, roommates and friends on the verge of the rest of their lives.
