Struggling to live a normal life a decade after escaping her kidnappers, Reeve LeClaire agrees to help her therapist throughout the rehabilitation of another rescued abductee only to discover that the girl is still being pursued by a ruthless predator.
With a fiercely original heroine and a plot that will keep you guessing until the very last page, Carla Norton’s The Edge of Normal is an “impressive mystery…with psychological depth (Booklist, starred review)” that no reader will soon forget.
In many ways, Reeve LeClaire seems like a typical twenty-something woman: She has her own place in San Francisco, waitresses to pay the bills, and lives a pleasant, structured life. But Reeve is anything but normal. Ten years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive for four years. Her lucky escape made headlines-and since then, she’s managed to rebuild her life, thanks in part to her brilliant psychiatrist, Ezra Lerner.
