On an icy winter’s day in southwest Michigan, Grace Abbott wakes up as the survivor of a car crash. But she’s left with a traumatic brain injury and a terrifying reality: she can’t remember anything.
Left in the care of her sister, Grace returns to the family’s secluded old farmhouse to recover—but within an hour of her return, the police arrive. Grace’s boyfriend has been murdered. Without any memory, Grace has no alibi.
With suspicion weighing heavily on her and flashes of memory returning, Grace searches for clues to her past. But with every glimpse, her anxiety grows. There is something about the house, her family, her childhood…perhaps the accident isn’t the only reason she can’t remember. Are the dark recesses of her mind hiding something even more sinister and terrifying than she could ever imagine?
Is someone willing to kill again to hide the truth?
A Note From the Publisher
“E.C. Diskin is the best and brightest new mystery writer to come along in a long time. In her powerful second novel Broken Grace, her use of language is deft and skillful—she turns a lovely phrase. Her characters, especially her women, are both real and original. Her story raises intriguing questions about identity, memory, association, trust, and the self on its most essential level. This is not so much a ‘whodunit’ as a ‘whoisit?’” —Peter Ferry, author of Travel Writing and Old Heart
