Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Lisa Power is a tortured ghost of her former self. The author of a bestselling thriller called Thief River Falls, named after her rural Minnesota hometown, Lisa is secluded in her remote house as she struggles with the loss of her entire family: a series of tragedies she calls the "Dark Star." Then a nameless runaway boy shows up at her door with a terrifying story - he's just escaped death after witnessing a brutal murder - a crime the police want to cover up. Obsessed with the boy's safety, Lisa resolves to expose this crime, but powerful men in Thief River Falls are desperate to get the boy back, and now they want her too. Lisa and her young visitor have nowhere to go as the trap closes around them. Still under the strange, unforgiving threat of the Dark Star, Lisa must find a way to save them both, or they'll become the victims of another shocking tragedy she can't foresee."--Publisher description.

    Lisa Power is a best-selling thriller writer whose tour de force, Thief River Falls, made her a national celebrity and, of course, a virtual legend in her Minnesota hometown, also called Thief River Falls. But following her breakthrough came a series of tragedies that virtually wiped out her family. Though she continues to make public appearances to promote her work, she has become an emotional recluse. Then a young boy appears on her isolated property. He's obviously experienced a trauma: he doesn't know his or his mother's name or or where he comes from. Worse, it turns out he's witnessed a murder, and there are men chasing him who want him dead. Lisa is determined to rescue him at whatever cost to herself. She realizes helping the boy, whom she's named Purdue, after a character in her book, will probably cost Lisa her life. Getting out of the small town is no easy trick: everyone knows her, and the city fathers, as well as the police, have much to cover up and would prefer that the boy—and now Lisa—were dead. Freeman does a masterful job creating a nightmare scenario of never-ending darkness, roads that go nowhere with bogeymen at every intersection. A disturbing yet compelling thriller.
