Rich Evans is desperate to say goodbye to his past in New York and embrace a future in Waterton with Lou Newman, the small-town car mechanic who is also the love of his life. Just when he is closing the door on the chaos of the big city, tragedy ensues on a large scale. He arrives in Waterton to discover the body of his ex-girlfriend has turned up in a remote area nearby.
Grisly details emerge, and Rich and Lou prepare to try to prove his innocence in a small town where the term ‘outsider’ can be applied to anyone who wasn’t born there.
Danika Stone is an author, artist, and educator who discovered a passion for writing fiction while in the throes of her Masters thesis. A self-declared bibliophile, Danika now writes novels for both teens: Switchback (Macmillan, 2019), Internet Famous (Macmillan, 2017) and All the Feels (Macmillan, 2016); and adults: Edge Of Wild (Stonehouse, 2016), The Dark Divide (Stonehouse, 2018) and Fall of Night (Stonehouse, 2020). When not writing, Danika can be found hiking in the Rockies, planning grand adventures, and spending far too much time online. She lives with her husband, three sons, and a houseful of imaginary characters in a windy corner of Alberta, Canada.
