Description


Gretchen Lowell is still on the loose. These days, she's more of a cause célèbre than a feared killer, thanks to sensationalist news coverage that has made her a star. Her face graces magazine covers and there have been sightings of her around the world. Most shocking of all, Portland Herald reporter Susan Ward has uncovered a bizarre fan club which celebrates the number of days she's been free…

Archie Sheridan hunted Gretchen for a decade, and after his last ploy to catch her went spectacularly wrong, he remains hospitalized months later. When they last spoke, they entered a détente of sorts—Archie agreed not to kill himself if she agreed not to kill anyone else. But when a new body is found accompanied by Gretchen's trademark heart, all bets are off and Archie is forced back into action. Is the Beauty Killer back—or has the cult surrounding her created a whole new evil?

About the Author


Chelsea Cain is the New York Times bestselling author of The Night Season, Evil at Heart, Sweetheart, and Heartsick. Both Heartsick and Sweetheart were listed in Stephen King’s Top Ten Books of the Year in Entertainment Weekly. Chelsea lived the first few years of her life on an Iowa commune, then grew up in Bellingham, WA, where the infamous Green River killer was “the boogieman” of her youth. The true story of the Green River killer’s capture was the inspiration for the story of Gretchen and Archie. Cain lives in Portland with her husband and daughter.

Praise For…


“She's the most twisted--and most beautiful--serial killer on the planet, and she's back... It's not to be missed.” —USA Today

“You have to hand it to Cain, who's made the serial-killer genre a thoroughly female-friendly experience. . . . [She] churns stomachs with a delicate touch.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Remember the old debate about which is mightier, the pen or the scalpel? In Evil at Heart, both are in the same hands, and both cut all the way to the bone.” —The Oregonian

“Cain is among a new breed of women writers stepping way out of the stereotypical female comfort zones… serving up meatier and more gruesome stories…. Cain knows how to keep readers fortified with psychological drama.” —Chicago Sun Times

“The narrative bounces along with Cain's trademark mix of tight plotting, creepy characters, and body parts.” —Charlotte Observer

“Cain continues to display her remarkable ability to probe the psyches of her characters... Popular entertainment--the kind that mixes crime, horror, and even a little black comedy--just doesn't get much better than this.” —Booklist (starred review)
