Susanna Miller loses custody of her eleven-month-old son, Tyler, but rather than turning the little boy over to her ex-husband and his new wife, she goes on the run. She dyes her hair, changes her name, and escapes from Boulder, Colorado, leaving behind everyone she knows, including Linc Sebastian, the man who has been her best friend since childhood and who knows her better than anyone. Susanna lands in Annapolis, Maryland, alone, frightened, and always looking over her shoulder for someone who might recognize her. Just as she's beginning to feel safe in her new surroundings, she stumbles across information that could save the lives of many people . . . if she's willing to take it to the police. But going to the authorities means revealing her identity, admitting her guilt, and worst of all, losing her son.

Equal parts family drama, love story, and thriller, The Escape Artist is the poignant story of a mother's unbreakable bond with her child and the resiliency of a love that transcends distance and time.

About the Author:

Diane Chamberlain is the USA Today bestselling author of over twenty novels, including Pretending to Dance, The Silent Sister, and The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes. A RITA Award winner, she holds a master's degree in social work from San Diego State University. Diane lives in North Carolina.

From Kirkus Reviews:

In her latest off-the-rack tale of domestic miseries, Chamberlain, (Reflection, 1996, etc.) leads off with a sure-fire grabber--a young mother who flees cross-country with her adored baby son, after losing a custody battle. Along the way, she confronts a romantic complications, a mystery, and fatal violence. Susanna Miller, having seen the custody of 11-month-old Tyler (survivor of a serious heart condition) awarded to ex-husband Jim and his new wife Peggy, knows what she has to do. Beginning with a night exodus from Boulder, Colorado, Susanna will travel east, eventually settling in Maryland. She'll adopt the name ``Kim,'' and little Tyler will answer to ``Cody.'' Kim's only link to Boulder is the syndicated radio show of the man she loves--disc jockey Linc Sebastain, who once served a short sentence for murder. His victim was Susanna's childhood tormenter, whom Linc had known as a neighbor years before. It's Linc's past, and his present involvement in her life (along with her own few days in a mental institution), that contributed to Susanna's court KO. In Maryland, jumpy Kim finds pleasant people, particularly a local artist, the attractive Adam, who pronounces her talented. Adam makes advances, Kim communicates with Linc via fax, and Linc responds on the airwaves. Kim must soon make a terrible decision, however, involving her knowledge of the route of a serial bomber: If she alerts the police, she will certainly lose Cody permanently. Meantime, back in Boulder, Peggy, essentially a good sort, is rapidly learning that Jim is a liar and a cad. She readies a surprise, while Kim sets off to waylay the crazy, deadly bomber advancing in the dark. There'll be a nick-of-time appearance, as well as a sacrificial demise. Chamberlain paces the flight-or-fight phases of the runaway mother's story with thoroughly professional ease: Her stories never cut deep, but they do skim along at a cheerful speed. A reliable time-passer. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
