It’s also the reason she’s spent years in a sleepy Canadian town, teaching students but not working with the police on active cases.
All of that changes when she receives a phone call from Chicago. Ivy is drawn back to the events that she never speaks of, the nightmare she endured that has defined her for years.
She returns to Chicago to work with the police. Chief Homicide Detective Max Irving isn’t happy. He isn’t happy with the trials he’s enduring with his teenage son, Ethan. He isn’t happy about the horrific cases he’s trying to solve. And he really isn’t happy about babysitting civilian Ivy Dunlap, who he believes has no business being involved with his case.
Until he learns the truth about Ivy. Then he realizes that Ivy has a target on her back and the killer they’re hunting isn’t just interested in single mothers and infants now. When Ivy’s past and Irving’s case collide will Irving be able to stop a killer before it costs him Ivy and his son?
These tensions add to the intensity of Anne Frasier’s 2002 thriller HUSH. For those anticipating her forthcoming page-turner THE BODY READER, HUSH is the perfect read. Between these two books Frasier has deprived me of a lot of sleep lately and the only problem I have with that is that, having read THE BODY READER, I have to wait even longer for Frasier’s next offering.
