Summary
"I'm going to kill her. You'd better come if you want to save her." Lorraine{u2014}"Rainy"{u2014}lives at the top of Tiger Mountain. Remote, moody, cloistered in pine trees and fog, it's a sanctuary, a new life. She can hide from the disturbing past she wants to forget. If she's allowed to. When Rainy reluctantly agrees to a girls' weekend in Vegas, she's prepared for an exhausting parade of shots and slot machines. But after a wild night, her friend Braithe doesn't come back to the hotel room. And then Rainy gets the text message, sent from Braithe's phone: someone has her. But Rainy is who they really want, and Rainy knows why. What follows is a twisted, shocking journey on the knife-edge of life and death. If she wants to save Braithe{u2014}and herself{u2014}the only way is to step back into the past. This seething, gut-punch of a thriller can only have sprung from the fiendish brain of Tarryn Fisher, one of the most cunning writers of our time. Looking for more great reads by Tarryn Fisher?

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Rainy, the protagonist of this initially slow-moving suspense novel from Fisher (The Wrong Family), has moved from New York City, where she was a successful sculptor, to Washington State to be with her boyfriend, Grant. She has spent a year, largely in vain, trying to make friends with the wives of Grant's buddies. When "the girls" suggest a trip to Las Vegas, Rainy balks, thinking: "Worst idea ever.... This trip, this gaudy, neon-crusted city--these women!" She finally agrees to go after repeated entreaties from Grant. The trip reveals repressed resentments among the women and stirs up disturbing memories from Rainy's early life in a commune near Las Vegas. When Rainy receives a text message telling her that one of her traveling companions has been kidnapped, she knows that her past has caught up with her and is ready for action. Flashbacks detailing Rainy's life as a young teen some 15 years earlier in a cult run by a messiah-like leader fuel the sense of menace and set up the book's exhilarating, action-packed finale. Readers will cheer as Rainey risks everything to bring down the man who stole her childhood. Fisher delivers the goods. Agent: Jane Dystel, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. (Apr.)"
