“Literary icon Isabel Allende mesmerizes . . . this race-against-the-clock thriller is pure magic.”—People Magazine, Four Stars
NOW WITH A NEW DEAR READER LETTER
New York Times bestselling author Isabel Allende demonstrates her remarkable literary versatility with this atmospheric, fast-paced mystery involving a brilliant teenage sleuth who matches wits with a serial killer in San Francisco.
Though they are as different as night and day, Indiana and Amanda Jackson have always shared a strong, mother-daughter bond. Beautiful and free-spirited, Indiana is a holistic healer. Teenage Amanda is a natural sleuth fascinated by the dark side of human nature like her father, the SFPD’s deputy chief of homicide. She also loves playing Ripper, an online mystery game.
When a serial killer strikes San Francisco, the young amateur detective plunges into her own investigation. But the case becomes all too personal when Indiana vanishes. Could her mother’s disappearance be linked to the murders? With Indiana’s life on the line, Amanda must solve this perplexing mystery . . . before it’s too late.
Isabel Allende is the author of twelve works of fiction, including the New York Times bestsellers Maya’s Notebook, Island Beneath the Sea, Inés of My Soul, Daughter of Fortune, and a novel that has become a world-renowned classic, The House of the Spirits. Born in Peru and raised in Chile, she lives in California.
