“Heather Gudenkauf is one of my favorite new authors." —Lisa Scottoline In this riveting prequel to New York Times bestselling author Heather Gudenkauf's novel Little Mercies, even the smallest lies can have far-reaching consequences. When a woman's body is discovered in a local park—with her bewildered four-year-old son sitting beside her—veteran social worker Ellen Moore is called in to assist in the police investigation. Positioned beneath a statue of Leto, the goddess of motherhood, Ellen discovers the crime is remarkably similar to one from a decade past. Ellen's professional duty is to protect the child, but she's not equipped to contend with a killer. As she races to connect the dots, she knows her time is running out. And the stakes are high: if she fails, another mother is sure to make the ultimate sacrifice. Don't miss Heather Gudenkauf's newest novel NOT A SOUND, out May 30, 2017!
