“Twisty, hair-raising tale.”—NEWSWEEK, Must-Read Fall Fiction/NonFiction
“Wendy Walker has done it again, created a nail-biter that’ll keep you up all night. But DON’T LOOK FOR ME is so much more than a twisty thriller. It’s a heartbreaking portrait of a family coping with grief and an insightful study of guilt and blame, gas-lighting and agency. If you love fast-paced page-turners with relatable, flawed characters, look no further!” —Angie Kim, bestselling author of Miracle Creek
“Wendy Walker’s novels are addictive. Like, controlled-substance addictive. And DON’T LOOK FOR ME, a thriller as intense and relentless as the metallic rain slashing across its jacket, ranks as Walker’s reigning champ.” —A. J. Finn, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
Since her breakout debut All Is Not Forgotten (2016), international bestseller Wendy Walker has become a master of her genre, credited with setting “a new standard for unreliable narrators” (Booklist, starred review) and excelling at “exploiting multiple timelines and ample misdirection” (Publishers Weekly). Her books have been translated into 23 languages; selected by Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club, The Today Show, and Book of the Month Club; been Indie Next, LibraryReads, and SkimmReads picks; and been optioned for both film and television, including her last novel, The Night Before, which Eva Longoria is developing into a television series.
Now, with DON’T LOOK FOR ME (St. Martin’s Publishing Group; September 15, 2020; Hardcover), Wendy Walker delivers “a master class in psychological suspense” (Cristina Alger) and “a riveting and intimate story of unimaginable loss which raises the question: When you’ve already done the unthinkable, can there be any chance of redemption?” (Karen Dionne).
In the novel, a grief-stricken wife and mother has a fleeting thought about walking away from her life and then mysteriously disappears. All signs point to a “walk away,” which happens all the time—women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over. Molly Clarke had plenty of reasons to do just that. But is it really what happened?
When a new lead comes in two weeks after the search has ended, Molly’s daughter, Nicole, begins to wonder. In spite of their strained relationship, nothing about her mother’s disappearance makes sense. When Nicole learns about another woman who vanished from the same small town, and then discovers a mysterious, secluded property, she inches closer to the truth about that night—and the danger surrounding her.
“DON’T LOOK FOR ME is a story about a woman with a tragic past and seemingly bleak future. A woman who has a flash about walking away from her life. A woman who takes a ride from a man, and his young daughter who reminds her of the child she lost years before,” explains Walker. “Molly’s disappearance and her daughter’s desperate search to find her fill the pages with twists, turns, and unexpected revelations. But at its heart, this is a story about grief, acceptance, and the power of redemption.”
Working at the top of her game, Wendy Walker again proves to be a storyteller par excellence whose books have been called “ferociously smart,” “twisted” and “irresistible.”
