— Sherri Smith and Gail Bowen

Follow Me Down by Sherri Smith is a gutsy, visceral, and beautifully crafted psychological thriller. No one can be trusted as the flawed but sympathetic protagonist struggles to find her missing twin brother. This novel has been described as “an engrossing page-turner that will keep the reader guessing right up to the delicious ending.”

With the The Winner’s Circle, bestselling author and “queen of Canadian crime fiction” (Winnipeg Free Press) Gail Bowen returns with the 17th installment of the Joanne Kilbourn series. Her masterfully compelling storytelling combines modern family life with a gripping and satisfying mystery.
