Description

In Wendy Walker's thrilling novel Don't Look for Me, the greatest risk isn't running away. It's running out of time. One night, Molly Clarke walked away from her life. She doesn't want to be found. Or at least, that's the story. The car abandoned miles from home. The note found at a nearby hotel. The shattered family that couldn't be put back together. They called it a "walk away." It happens all the time. Women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over. But is that what really happened to Molly Clarke? Don't Look For Me is: ADDICTIVE.
--A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window "GRIPPING...WITH UNEXPECTED TWISTS... You've got a cracking mystery on your hands."
--Adrian McKinty, author of The Chain "A NAILBITER . . . SO MUCH MORE THAN A TWISTY THRILLER. It's a heartbreaking portrait of a family coping with grief and an insightful study of guilt and blame, gaslighting and agency. If you love fast-paced page-turners with relatable, flawed characters, look no further!"
--Angie Kim, author of Miracle Creek

Wendy Walker's novels are addictive. Like, controlled-substance addictive. And Don't Look for Me, a thriller as intense and relentless as the metallic rain slashing across its jacket, ranks (as of this writing, at least) as Walker's reigning champ: a book that blood-samples her earlier work -- the poignant drama of All Is Not Forgotten, the ambition of Emma in the Night, the narrative daring of The Night Before -- and swirls them into a bold new mixture, both potent and complex. --A.J. Finn, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window Don't Look for Me is a gripping psychological thriller from Wendy Walker with unexpected twists and an enjoyable momentum. Throw in the fact that it's set in that strange country around Route 7 in far western Massachusetts and you've got a cracking mystery on your hands. - Adrian McGinty, New York Times bestselling author of The Chain

Wendy Walker has done it again, created a nail-biter that'll keep you up all night. But Don't Look for Me is so much more than a twisty thriller.

If you love fast-paced page-turners with relatable, flawed characters, look no further! - Angie Kim, bestselling author of Miracle Creek "Wendy Walker hits it out of the park once again in her newest psychological suspense Don't Look for Me, a riveting and intimate story of unimaginable loss which raises the question: When you've already done the unthinkable, can there be any chance of redemption? Sharp, nuanced, utterly real and absolutely terrifying, this beautifully written and emotionally powerful novel is Walker at her best. I didn't simply read this book--I devoured it!" - Karen Dionne, author of the #1 international bestseller The Marsh King's Daughter "Wow! I hate to be repetitive but...WOW! Wendy Walker always writes amazing books but Don't Look for Me may be her finest novel yet. It's unsettling in the very best way and truly riveting." - Samantha Downing, author of the #1 International Bestseller, My Lovely Wife

Wendy Walker's Don't Look for Me is a pulse-pounding, thrill ride of a novel with heart.

I couldn't put it down! -- Kathleen Barber Don't Look for Me is a master class in psychological suspense. Deftly written, perfectly plotted and peopled with nuanced, complex characters, this superb thriller is Walker's best to date. I'll be thinking about this book - with its head-spinning twists and perfect denouement - for months to come. -- Cristina Alger Wang Praise for Wendy Walker: Walker excels at exploiting multiple timelines and ample misdirection to maximize the suspense of her twist-filled tale. --Publisher's Weekly Walker's clever misdirection paves the way to a truly chilling finale, and she has plenty of insightful things to say about the blame placed on women by society and themselves for the idiotic, careless, and sometimes downright evil things men do. Twisty and propulsive. --Kirkus

Skillfully manipulating tension and using breathless pacing, Walker keeps that question in the air until the final twist unmasks secrets about Laura's disappearance and the murder in her past. --Booklist Secrets, lies, and time jumps will keep readers on their toes. --Library Journal I raced through The Night Before, another page-turning cracker from Wendy Walker. You're in for a treat!. --B.A. Paris, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors A dazzling hall-of-mirrors thriller: ferociously smart, furiously paced, and -- best of all -- honest-to-goodness surprising.
