With compelling characters, a gripping plot and chilling suspense, Sara Blaedel delivers another must-read thriller with The Lost Woman.
Louise Rick is back, happier than ever now that former partner Eik and she are living together. But a new case threatens to tear apart their burgeoning relationship.
In England, a mother is shot through her kitchen window, leaving a daughter and husband as witnesses to the shocking murder. As it turns out, victim Sofie Parker is a Danish citizen who has been missing for years.
Eik then suddenly disappears without a word, only to be found drunk and behind bars in England as a suspect in Sofie’s murder.
Despite Louise’s chaotic emotions, she must figure out who killed Sofie if she’s to help clear Eik. The more she digs, however, the more secrets she uncovers, the more she realizes others may be in danger too.
Blending tautly written procedurals, emotionally rich and relatable characters and twisty, edge-of-your-seat suspense, Blaedel continues to showcase her prowess at writing engaging, compelling suspense.
About The Lost Woman
A housewife is the target of a shocking, methodical killing. Shot with a hunting rifle through her kitchen window, the woman is dead before she hits the ground.
Though murdered in England, it turns out that the woman, Sofie Parker, is actually a Danish citizen who’s been on the Missing Persons list for almost two decades-so Louise Rick is called on to the case. Then, in an unexpected twist, the police discover that Sofie had been reported missing eighteen years ago by none other than Eik, Louise Rick’s police colleague and lover.
Impulsive as ever, Eik rushes to England, and ends up in jail on suspicion of Sofie’s murder. Completely blindsided by Eik’s connection to the case, Louise is thoroughly unsettled and sick with worry, yet she must set aside her own emotional turmoil if she hopes to find the killer in what will become her most controversial case yet…
