Pick of the Week: Dead Scared!

Pick of the Week: Dead Scared!

In the March 19th issue, Publishers Weekly selected S. J. Bolton's latest psychological thriller, DEAD SCARED, as their Pick of the Week!

When a rash of suspicious suicides tears through Cambridge University, Detective Lacey Flint goes undercover as a student to investigate. The London police are not convinced that the victims acted alone; they believe that someone might be preying on insecure students. As long as Lacey can play the role of a vulnerable young woman, she may be able to stop these deaths, but with her fragile past, is she drawing out a killer, or being drawn into a deadly game in which she’s the perfect victim?

"Bolton (winner of two Mary Higgins Clark Awards) never eases up the tension; her tightly coiled plot and heroine on the edge work perfectly in tandem. " -Publishers Weekly (starred review, pick of the week)
