The Fear In Her Eyes

by Grant Mckenzie

The Fear In Her Eyes Synopsis

For the first time in print, from internationally-acclaimed thriller writer Grant McKenzie comes a novel that hits perilously close to home, and will keep you guessing until the last page. What if everything you believed about the worst event in your life was a lie? Ian Quinn's day begins with an anonymous death threat, but that's not entirely unusual in his line of work as a court-ordered child protection officer. The frustrated parents of his clients often need someone to lash out at -- and Ian makes sure that he is the easiest target. But the threat is nothing compared to the envelope stuffed into his hand by a foul-smelling vagrant who mutters the cryptic message, He says he's sorry before scurrying away. The envelope with his name scrawled across the front contains a lone visitor's pass to the Oregon State Penitentiary, and the accompanying message fills Ian's heart with both terror and revulsion. The author of the note destroyed Ian's life. In the blink of an eye, this drunk-driving scum took the most precious thing in Ian's life. Worst of all, Ian had watched it happen. And now the man wants to see him. The message is short. Only seven words. I was paid to kill your daughter.
