I have three confessions to make:
1. I’ve got the scar of a gunshot on my forehead.
2. I don’t remember an entire year of my life.
3. My name is Kellen Adams…and that’s half a lie.
Girl running…from a year she can’t remember, from a husband she prays is dead, from homelessness and fear. Tough, capable Kellen Adams takes a job as assistant manager of a remote vacation resort on the North Pacific Coast. There amid the towering storms and the lashing waves, she hopes to find sanctuary. But when she discovers a woman’s dead and mutilated body, she’s soon trying to keep her own secrets while investigating first one murder…then another.
Now every guest and employee is a suspect. Every friendly face a mask. Every kind word a lie. Kellen’s driven to defend her job, her friends and the place she’s come to call home. Yet she wonders—with the scar of a gunshot on her forehead and amnesia that leaves her unsure of her own past—could the killer be staring her in the face?
Booklist starred review: “No one does high-stakes, high-voltage suspense quite like Dodd (The Woman Who Couldn’t Scream, 2017), and her latest flawlessly written novel is another guaranteed keep-the-lights-on-late read. From the unforgettable heroine with a past to the incisively etched cast of secondary characters to the brilliantly imaginative plot, Dodd is at her most wildly entertaining, wickedly witty best.”
Library Journal: Christina Dodd’s Dead Girl Running (HQN, Apr. 2018) introduces a woman running to the Pacific Northwest “from a year she can’t remember, a husband she prays is dead, homelessness, and fear.”
