The Deepest Water

The Deepest Water
by Kate Wilhelm

Abby Conners is numbed by her father's murder and she goes through the motions in the days after his death. Prodded by questions from the police, Abby rouses herself from her grief-stricken stupor and begins to think about why someone killed her father. Judson Vickers lived and died in a remote cabin in the Cascade Mountains where he wrote best-selling novels. The characters in the books were lightly disguised people that Jud knew. The plots were based on Jud's experiences. Abby wonders if someone had a secret that he or she did not want exposed in Jud's latest book. Kate Wilhelm takes a break from her Barbara Holloway series and writes this psychological thriller. [If you enjoy this, you may also like books by Lisa Jackson, Linwood Barclay and Tami Hoag.] -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department
