After disappearing with her sister Emma three years earlier, Cass Tanner returns home, telling of an argument she had with Emma, who was pregnant and running away; of a couple who said they wanted to help Emma, but Cass realized had ulterior motives; how both girls had been taken and held on a mysterious island in Maine ever since. It’s quite the story, and one that FBI forensic psychiatrist Abby Winter finds suspicious, especially in light of the girls’ emotionally manipulative mother, in Wendy Walker’s new thriller, Emma in the Night. Publishers Weekly says, “Walker’s portrayal of the ways in which a narcissistic, self-involved mother can affect her children deepens the plot as it builds to a shocking finale.”
