Description

From the bestselling author of Still Mine and Still Water—PI Clare O’Dey is on the hunt for two missing persons. Little does she know she’s the one being hunted.

Malcolm is gone. Disappeared. And no one knows where or why.
His colleague and fellow private investigator, Clare, is certain she can find him, as she holds the key to his past. She arrives in the oceanside city where he last lived and starts digging around. Not only is Malcolm gone without a trace, so is his wife, Zoe. Everyone who knew the perfect couple sees Malcolm as the prime suspect in his wife’s disappearance. Everyone except Clare. She’s certain there’s more at play that has nothing to do with Malcolm, a dark connection to Zoe’s family business and the murder of her father years ago.
As Clare pulls back the layers, she discovers secrets the entire community is trying desperately to leave in the past. As for Malcolm, his past is far more complex—and far more sinister—than Clare could ever have imagined. He may not be innocent at all. As she searches for the man who helped her build her career as a private eye, Clare discovers that many women are in grave danger. And she is among them.

Editorial Reviews

“From its evocative opening to its heart-pounding conclusion, Still Mine is a gripping mystery that I felt desperate to solve. Amy Stuart paints a vivid picture of the stark mountain town, Blackmore, and the cast of shadowy characters who inhabit it. A tense and absorbing read.”
LUCY CLARKE, author of The Blue


Praise for STILL HERE
“A powerful, atmospheric, perfectly plotted thriller. . . . An outstanding read.”
— SAMANTHA M. BAILEY, #1 bestselling author of Woman on the Edge


“Riveting, twisty and full of tangled secrets…. A stay-up-all-night read. Impossible to put down!”
KARMA BROWN, bestselling author of In This Moment


“Author Amy Stuart has created a likable heroine, complete with some pretty serious flaws. Between Clare and the other characters of Blackmore, the story is both haunting and compelling.”
Vancouver Sun


“Utterly compelling and intriguing, Still Water is a very clever whodunit with a most appealingly vulnerable protagonist. My husband thought I was ignoring him while I was reading this book. I wasn’t. I just forgot he existed because I was so engrossed. Warn your families before you pick up this book.”
LIZ NUGENT, bestselling author of Unraveling Oliver


“As swift, intense, and vengeful as the river it describes, this book is a must-read. Secrets swirl in the deep of Still Water, Stuart’s gripping new thriller of loss and refuge. With a gallery of characters on the run, the pages beat and churn like an aching heart.”
ROZ NAY, bestselling author of Our Little Secret


“A gripping page-turner, with a plot that takes hold of you and drags you through the story at breakneck speed. The characters are compelling, the setting chilling and the suspense ever-present. Add to that, Stuart has an ability to tap into the dark psychology behind addiction and abuse, and to bring these complex struggles to life in a way that stays with you for days.”
Toronto Star


“An intricately woven thriller. . . . You’ll want desperately to solve the mystery not only of the missing Shayna, but of Clare O’Dey, Amy Stuart’s heartbreaking heroine, on the run from the darkest forces both within and without—and you’ll have a hard time forgetting the everytown of Blackmore and its scheming, desperate inhabitants. . . . A vivid and haunting debut.”
HOLLY LECRAW, author of The Swimming Pool


 “Instantly captivating, mysterious and relevant—Amy Stuart has done it again!”
MARISSA STAPLEY, author of Things to Do When It’s Raining


“Complex characters with gut-wrenching backstories propel this twisty mystery toward its shocking conclusion. I was engrossed!”
ROBYN HARDING, bestselling author of The Party


“The tension in this book is sharp enough to cut. A pervasive sense of dread and danger flows through Still Water as Clare struggles to unravel both the secrets in front of her and the ones she thought she left behind. If you liked Still Mine, you'll love Still Water.”
TYRELL JOHNSON, bestselling author of The Wolves of Winter


“Her prose is rich and descriptive, building suspense and creating a moody atmosphere.”
Quill and Quire


Praise for STILL WATER
“Torontonian Amy Stuart’s debut novel, Still Mine, was highly promising. Still Water brings back the same characters in a new setting and proves that Stuart is no one-book author. Still Water is even better than her debut.”
— The Globe and Mail


“Stuart is a sensitive writer who has given Clare a painful past and just enough backbone to bear it.”
New York Times


“In Stuart’s gripping third Still psychological thriller . . . Readers will cheer Clare all the way to the satisfactory resolution. Those new to the series will want to go back and read the first two books.”
— Publishers Weekly


Still Mine delivers all the nail-biting moments of a fast-paced thriller and filters them through the eyes of girl-with-a-past Clare O’Dey: deeply flawed yet instantly recognizable, O’Dey is a noir detective hero for a postmodern age. Author Amy Stuart sends one missing woman out to look for another one, and the result is chilling. You’ll find yourself turning the pages faster and faster.”
ELISABETH DE MARIAFFI, author of The Devil You Know


Praise for STILL MINE
“An impressive debut, rooted in character rather than trope, in fundamental understanding rather than rote puzzle-solving.”
The Globe and Mail


“Twisty and swift, Amy Stuart’s Still Mine is a darkly entertaining mystery machine. But what will really surprise you is the emotional foundation on which it has been built.”
ANDREW PYPER, bestselling author of The Demonologist and The Damned


“A haunting treasure of a book that burrowed its way into my psyche as I read it. . . . Not since The Silent Wife have I been rendered so powerlessly riveted by a psychological thriller. I can’t wait to read what Stuart writes next.”
MARISSA STAPLEY, author of Mating for Life


“Dark and deliciously disturbing debut.”
Publishers Weekly
