Left Coast Crime 

22-25 March


The body found in a muddy grave across the street is just the latest horror threatening to tear apart Ali McGovern’s life seam by seam. She knows Angelo, her brooding teenage son, is keeping secrets. She fears he's in danger too. But her new job at the psychiatric hospital, the job her husband pushed her into, is using up everything she's got every day.  She can try to ignore the sounds that surely can't really be there. And she can try to trust the doctors who can't be as dark as they seem. But can Ali hold herself, her life and her family together without getting blood on her hands?

'An unnerving and suspenseful novel. House.Tree.Person is McPherson's best yet" KARIN SLAUGHTER

'McPherson is a master at creating psychological tension ... a one-sitting read." KIRKUS (starred)

'riveting ... every factor, every character, every movement is pivotal" DRU ANN LOVE

"McPherson knows how to lay on the creep and keep it building for maximum effect, and her talent for domestic suspense is second to none. ... Get a hold of this one ASAP. "                     CRIMINAL ELEMENT

"McPherson continues to impress ... House. Tree. Person may just be here best yet ... one of those books where saying too much will ruin the reader experience, so my lips are sealed. Just know that you need to buy this book!"                                BOLO BOOKS

"a complex story whose characters have layer upon layer of hidden motives, which award-winning writer Catriona McPherson deftly peels away. I found the smoky darkness of this slow-paced but relentless Scottish mystery very appealing."                     MYSTERY SCENE
