Little Deaths

Emma Flint

From Shelf: All Time Favourites.

It's every mother's worst nightmare. But Ruth Malone is not like other mothers . . .

Heart-poundingly suspenseful, Little Deaths, inspired by a true story, is a gripping novel about love, morality and obsession.It's the summer of 1965, and the streets of Queens, New York shimmer in a heatwave. One July morning, Ruth Malone wakes to find a bedroom window wide open and her two young children missing. After a desperate search, the police make a horrifying discovery.Noting Ruth's perfectly made-up face and provocative clothing, the empty liquor bottles and love letters that litter her apartment, the detectives leap to convenient conclusions, fuelled by neighbourhood gossip and speculation.Sent to cover the case on his first major assignment, tabloid reporter Pete Wonicke at first can't help but do the same. But the longer he spends watching Ruth, the more he learns about the darker workings of the police and the press. Soon, Pete begins to doubt everything he thought he knew.Ruth Malone is enthralling, challenging and secretive - is she really capable of murder?'A lightning fast, heart-pounding, psychologically resonant crime novel that effortlessly transcends genre.' - Jeffery Deaver, author of the Lincoln Rhyme series
