Skully, Perdition Games
By L.E. Fraser
The beautiful wife of an aspiring politician vanishes from her home and police discover a gruesome crime scene. But things may not be as they seem, and the woman’s dark past could hold the key to her strange disappearance.
She can't run fast enough to escape her past.
Authorities find five-year-old Gabriella LeBlanc walking on the ice of Lake Superior six months after an unspeakable crime. Michigan police discover a dead man in a wilderness cabin, but the child has no memory of her abduction or captivity.
Thirty years later, Gabriella disappears from her home after calling 911, and Toronto PI Samantha McNamara and ex-OPP Inspector Reece Hash must unravel the shocking truth behind the woman’s haunted life before a jury convicts her husband of murder.
But the web of lies Sam is weaving around her past begins to disintegrate when their investigation reveals hidden ties her father had to the murdered woman’s childhood. As Reece’s suspicions mount, Sam struggles to guard her secrets and uncover Gabriella’s disturbing history before time runs out.
A dark thriller with twists that keep readers turning the pages.
