In this masterpiece of psychological suspense (second only, perhaps, to Ms. Wright's Edgar-winning The Suspect), the real villain is self-delusion; it inflicts more damage than even the craziest serial-killer. In the case of Emma O'Brea, the delusions concern her marriage: When her husband Charlie disappears it quickly becomes apparent that Emma was the only person in Canada who didn't recognize how desperate he had been to leave. And then there's Eddie Addison, an overgrown delivery boy, far from the sharpest knife in the drawer, and obsessed – dangerously obsessed – with a pretty young student. Eddie and Emma would seem to have little in common, but when Inspector Karl Alberg is called in to solve the riddle of Charlie's vanishing act, the two sets of disturbing delusions begin to converge, with a climax that even the canniest reader is unlikely to see coming.

About the Author:

L.R. Wright worked as a reporter and a columnist until turning to freelance writing full time. She published her first novel, Neighbours, in 1979 and two more in the next five years before turning to the mystery genre. Her first mystery novel, The Suspect, won the 1986 Edgar Award for Best Novel; beating out entries by Simon Brett, Ruth Rendell, and Paul Auster. She went on to write eight more novels in the Karl Alberg Mysteries series between 1986 and 1997.

Review:

A stunning procedural mystery... the ending is a real killer. (New York Times)

L.R. Wright demonstrates once again that she can keep up with the best crime writers  even the Ruth Rendells and the P.D. James. (Toronto Sun)
