A dark, compulsively readable psychological suspense debut, and the first in a new series featuring a character as heartbreakingly troubled and emotionally complex as Stieg Larsson`s Lisbeth Salander, the brilliant, fearless, chaotic, and deeply flawed Nora Watts, who is a survivor despite the crushing odds.
DEEP CURRENT begins with a phone call. The child Nora Watts gave up for adoption fifteen years ago, the product of a brutal rape that left her clinging to life, has vanished and the police are labeling her a chronic runaway. No one is looking for the girl and her adoptive parents have nowhere else to turn. Once a starving artist herself, a biracial product of the foster system, transient, homeless, left for dead in a dark forest, Nora knows better than anyone what happens to girls that are lost to the streets. To the girls that the police don`t even bother to look for.
As she begins to investigate, she uncovers a dangerous conspiracy and embarks on a harrowing journey of deception and violence that takes her from the rainy streets of Vancouver to the snow-capped mountains of the Canadian interior and finally to the island where she will face her greatest demon: a shadowy figure from her own dark past. All to save a girl she wishes had never been born.
