A single mother faces her worst fear—the past—in a provocative novel of suspense by the author of The Speed of Light.
Iris Jenkins knows that bad things happen. She’s tried to escape these things for years. So when Iris is entrusted to house-sit at a lodge on the South Dakota prairie, she thinks she’s prepared for anything.
But one surprise is Sawyer Jones, the property’s neighbor and caretaker. He’s a caring, reassuring presence who’s making her feel safe and alive again. Then late one night, Iris hears a chilling cry for help coming from a walkie-talkie buried in a box of toys. As the calls get more desperate, personal, and menacing, Iris realizes the person on the other end isn’t reaching out for help. They’re reaching out to terrorize her.
Now the only way for Iris to move forward in life is to confront the past she’s been running from…a threat that has now followed her into the dark.
A Note From the Publisher
“A lucky few of us walk in the sunshine, and the rest of us have to fight our way out of the dark. Elissa Grossell Dickey’s Iris is one of the latter, and in elegant prose, she makes Iris’s journey heart-wrenching, memorable, and all too real. Pages turn faster and faster as you speed to the satisfying resolution of Iris in the Dark.” —Kristin Wright, Amazon bestselling author of The Darkest Flower and The Darkest Web
“Iris in the Dark investigates the shadowy corners of one woman’s past—and how they try to reclaim her, just as she finally finds some light. It’s a moving and suspenseful story with prose as impactful as its characters’ journeys. I read this one in a single sitting, pulled along by the novel’s stunning revelations and Elissa Grossell Dickey’s beautiful storytelling.” —Megan Collins, author of The Family Plot
“Iris in the Dark is an unputdownable, unforgettable story of trauma and strength. Dickey expertly fuses romance and internal struggle with moments of abject terror, making for a fast-paced one-sitting read.” —Suzy Krause, author of Valencia and Valentine and Sorry I Missed You
