About this title

Synopsis:

Written in a tone of suppressed eroticism and infused with surprising revelations of false identities, Find Courtney is a psychological thriller that keeps the reader guessing up to its startling climax.

From the Inside Flap:

Written in a tone of suppressed eroticism and infused with surprising revelations, "Find Courtney" is a novel whose characters are gradually shown to be not at all what they first appear. Their past actions and motivations are disclosed bit by bit, leading to this noir thriller's startling climax. Fanoy, the narrator with a mesmerizingly authentic voice, is a twenty-five-year-old, self-absorbed Miami college student. her life changes when she gets a chance to room with a wealthy, gorgeous fellow student, Courtney Armorault, in Courtney's beachfront apartment. Then Courtney goes out jogging one morning and does not return. Courtney's father, Bret Armorault, arrives from his home inland from Miami. Fanoy finds him intriguingly enigmatic--seemingly a laidback free spirit, yet controlling, a man she speculates may have become rich as an illegal drug importer. He persuades Fanoy to join him in searching for Courtney. They talk to Courtney's friends, her professors, and the police. As the two gather conflicting evidence and disturbing details about Courtney's life, a sexual tension grows between them. Bret persuades Fanoy to accompany him to his inland mansion, a decaying Franco-Italianate villa that had once belonged to a fan dancer with a past. In this house of many secrets, Bret and Fanoy become close. For the first time in her life, Fanoy has someone who wants her. But can she be sure Bret is not simply using her as an instrument of his manipulation? As Fanoy discovers more about Bret and Courtney, and Bret learns more of Fanoy's life, readers of this well-plotted tale of intrigue and false identities will find a novel exploring the intersection of sexuality and identity, seduction and revelation, and the wilder reaches of human nature.
