From the Bestselling Author of All Is Not Forgotten

One night, teenage sisters Cass and Emma disappear from their affluent, suburban home. Three years later, with just the clothes on her back and no evidence of where she’s been, Cass returns – without her sister. She talks of kidnapping and isolation, and a mysterious island where the two were held. But her story has holes – and it’s up to forensic psychologist Dr. Abby Winter to find the missing sister, Emma, and uncover what really happened in their tortured past. The truth will shock even Cass herself – a tale of fear, family and what it will take to survive her own past.

“Twisty…a thriller that keeps readers guessing.”  The New York Times

“In this searing psychological thriller…Walker’s portrayal of the ways in which a narcissistic, self-involved mother can affect her children deepens the plot as it builds to a shocking finale.”  Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Both twisted and twisty, this smart psychological thriller sets a new standard for unreliable narrators.” Booklist (starred review)

“Explores the bond between sisters and family dynamics that give new meaning to the term ‘dysfunctional.’ This thriller aims right for the heart and never lets go.” Kirkus 

“In Emma in the Night, Walker has…brought her A-game of cat and mouse…. Each chapter adds another warped layer to the story, and just when you think you’ve sorted out the villains and the victims, Walker forces you to reconsider. A memorable and highly satisfying thriller.” Amazon

“Walker’s prose is flawless, alternating between the singular voices of the unreliable Cass and the tenacious FBI psychologist who finds every character suspect and devious.” iBooks 

“I love an edge-of-your-seat psychological thriller that feels authentic, current, and keeps you up way too late at night.”—Krysten Ritter, Book of the Month Club

Now I just need a fire and a quiet house. And coffee. And a blanket. And maybe some chocolate. This book deserves the best! @ba_shapiro ...
