Description

'Compelling' Guardian

New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh welcomes you to a remote town where even the blinding sun can't mask the darkness that lies deep within a killer...

Golden Cove was a peaceful town.

Then one fateful summer a tragedy shattered the trust holding the community together. All that's left are whispers behind closed doors, broken friendships and a silent agreement to never look back. But you can't run from the past forever.

Eight years later, a young woman disappears without a trace, and the residents of Golden Cove wonder if their home shelters something far more dangerous than an unforgiving landscape.

The town's dark past and haunted present are about to collide . . . in a murder mystery that's been years in the making.

Review quote

Nalini Singh's latest novel, A Madness of Sunshine, has more twists and turns than the rugged New Zealand coastline on which it's set . . . Chocked full of unique characters and red herrings, this book is just my kind of pulse-pounding mystery. I loved it! Though A Madness of Sunshine is the first novel of Ms. Singh's I've read, it won't be the last * Lisa Jackson, New York Times bestselling author * Lush, atmospheric, and addictive, A Madness of Sunshine seduces with its beautiful sense of place and layered, compelling characters, then hooks you right in with a riveting noir mystery. When a beautiful girl goes missing and a dark past collides with the brutal present, the truth is as harsh and unforgiving as the landscape in which Nalini Singh's twisting tale is set * Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author * Popular romance author Singh shifts to a new genre, New Zealand gothic, in which nearly every character -- including the dense, ferocious landscape -- has something to hide, and studying them is nearly as fascinating and compelling as solving the multifaceted mystery. Astute, insightful, and descriptive storytelling; a strong step in a new direction for Singh * Kirkus * Nalini Singh's gorgeous descriptions of the wild west coast of New Zealand in A Madness of Sunshine add a palpable air of danger to the 'harsh and unforgiving landscape' of this beautiful land 'at the bottom of the world' * The New York Times Book Review * An atmospheric read with a compelling sense of the spectacular rugged landscape * Guardian * [An] exceptional first crime novel * Publishers Weekly * Singh puts her previous writing experience to great effect in this accomplished novel * Sunday Times *

About Nalini Singh

Nalini Singh was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She spent three years living and working in Japan, and travelling around Asia before returning to New Zealand now - although she's always plotting new trips. She has worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher, not necessarily in that order. Some people might call that inconsistency, but she calls it grist for the writer's mill.
