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.

“Complex characters with gut-wrenching backstories propel this twisty mystery toward its shocking conclusion. I was engrossed!”
— ROBYN HARDING, bestselling author of The Party
“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
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
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
“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
“The reigning queen of Canadian thrillerdom . . . [A] stay-up-past-your-bedtime page-turner.”
— Reader’s Digest Canada
“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
