Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Liz and Paul Daniels have two young children and live a seemingly idyllic life on an organic family farm. Paul is a professor determined to live a green, postconsumer lifestyle, and Liz goes along with it as much as possible. They take their first family vacation in years, a road trip to visit Paul’s parents on their commercial farm, stopping at a hotel along the way. When Liz wakes up, her children are gone, and then Paul disappears, too. The police immediately abandon their search, considering it a domestic dispute, and Liz is both heartbroken and furious. Determined to find her children, she begins the search with her in-laws, who deny any knowledge of their son or grandchildren. She soon heads home to Paul’s computer and his office at the university, quickly realizing that she doesn’t know her husband at all. How far Paul will go to live his politics and how a determined mother can seemingly overcome almost any obstacle form the core of this tautly written page-turner. Milchman shows her chops with this sophomore effort (following Cover of Snow, 2013), and she carves out a new niche with this unusual mix of ecothriller and family suspense drama. --Stacy Alesi

Review

Praise for Jenny Milchman and Ruin Falls

"[Jenny] Milchman has a gift that allows her to delve deep into the mind and psyche of her characters, and fans of dark plots like the works of Gillian Flynn will find another author to savor."--RT Book Reviews

"Essential for psychological thriller fanatics . . . Extreme, heart-pounding action follows this determined mother as she risks everything to save her children."--Library Journal

"[Jenny Milchman] carves out a new niche with this unusual mix of ecothriller and family suspense drama."--Booklist (starred review)

"Milchman weaves a complex and intriguing tale, adeptly pacing the narrative as danger escalates. . . . Most impressive, though, is Liz's transformation from a meek wife . . . to a strong, capable woman determined to rescue her children at any cost to herself."--Publishers Weekly

"Absorbing from start to finish: Jenny Milchman writes a deeply felt and suspenseful story of a woman whose life is upended by a death and a dark secret."--Nancy Pickard, bestselling author of The Scent of Rain and Lightning

"Milchman can evoke the shadows and fears of a rural community like no one else."--DuJour

Praise for Jenny Milchman's Cover of Snow

"Terrifically suspenseful . . . Reading Cover of Snow feels like racing across a frozen lake: heart-pounding, exhilarating, frightening."--Louise Penny, New York Times bestselling author of How the Light Gets In

"Everything a great suspense novel should be--tense, emotional, mysterious, and satisfying . . . Let's hope this is the start of a long career."--Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Wanted Man

"Milchman makes [readers] feel the chill right down to their bones and casts a particularly effective mood in this stylish thriller."--Kirkus Reviews

"Milchman tackles small-town angst where evil can simmer under the surface with a breathless energy and a feel for realistic characters."--The Seattle Times
