One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. She talks of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn’t add up. There are holes in the story, and an in depth look at this dysfunctional family leads Dr. Winter to unearth a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. Perhaps one sister’s return is just the beginning of the story, and the crime.
Wendy Walker is the author of the national and international bestseller All is Not Forgotten (St. Martin’s Press 2016), and newly released, Emma In The Night (St. Martin’s Press 2017). She previously published two novels and edited multiple compilations for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Prior to her writing career, Wendy practiced family law, having earned her J. D. from Georgetown University Law Center and her undergraduate degree from Brown University.
