In author Wendy Walker’s latest novel, Emma in the Night, she brings us a thriller about two missing sisters. When the youngest Cass returns, it should be the end of a devastating tale of kidnapping and betrayal.
So why does forensic psychiatrist Dr Abby Winter feel this is not the whole story and that something doesn’t add up?
Cass thinks getting people to believe you is easy; you just have to tell them what they want to hear.
“When my sister and I disappeared three years ago, I was 15, Emma was two years older. They found Emma’s car at the beach.
Some people believed she had gone there to find a party or meet a friend who never showed.
They believed that she’d gone for a swim. They believed that she’d drowned.
Maybe by accident. Maybe a suicide. Everyone believed Emma was dead.
As for me, well – now I’m back to tell our story.
You’ll have to see if you believe it.”
Wendy Walker is a former family law attorney who began writing while at home raising her three sons. She published two novels with St. Martin’s Press and edited multiple compilations for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. Her debut novel was the psychological thriller, All is Not Forgotten.
