From Publishers Weekly
When a powerful twister hits the little town of Cherrystone, Wash., former Seattle homicide detective Emily Kenyon checks in on the Martins: she finds their home demolished by the storm, and three of the four family members murdered by a demented killer. Suspiciously missing from the carnage is older son Nick, but is he a witness or the murderer? And Emily soon finds that her teenage daughter, Jenna, has run off with Nick in order to help him clear his name. What Emily doesn't know is that the Martin family deaths are connected to a series of murders going back two decades, and are linked to a case from her own past whose tragic outcome ultimately drove her out of the Seattle police force. Olsen does a nice job balancing past and present plots and subplots in this intricately layered story, keeping the tension taut and pages turning. (Apr.)

What I loved about this novel is that it is well-written and the deftly handled plot twists are plenty. Olsen is a master at fleshing out various characters' psychology and motivations. He writes women incredibly well--from the embittered, haunted but compassionate and likeable Kenyon to the serial killer groupies, Bonnie and Tina who show up later in the book. His use of the flashback is incredible and I loved how everything came together in the end. Olsen puts a new, brilliant and clever twist on the murder-suicide story. Things are not at all what they seem. As a long time crime thriller reader, I found this novel to be incredibly satisfying and I can't wait to read the rest of Olsen's fiction.
