Staff Reviews


I have been a huge fan of Lori Rader-Day since her debut mystery, and I can honestly say that her books keep getting better. I was immediately drawn into The Day I Died with a stunning first chapter and the development of a murder and a missing child. Anna is a woman on the run. She is a handwriting expert (the details of this are fascinating), trying to adapt to a new place, and stuggling to raise a teenager. This story has so many layers that you will not be able to put it down. The pages seem to turn themselves. Also, Lori named a character after me, so now you really need to buy this book.

Description


From the award-winning author of Little Pretty Things comes this gripping, unforgettable tale of a mother's desperate search for a lost boy.

Anna Winger can know people better than they know themselves with only a glance—at their handwriting. Hired out by companies wanting to land trustworthy employees and by the lovelorn hoping to find happiness, Anna likes to keep the real-life mess of other people at arm’s length and on paper. But when she is called to use her expertise on a note left behind at a murder scene in the small town she and her son have recently moved to, the crime gets under Anna’s skin and rips open her narrow life for all to see. To save her son—and herself—once and for all, Anna will face her every fear, her every mistake, and the past she thought she'd rewritten.

Praise For…


“A searing, psychological suspense novel about small-town dreams shattered by a deadly secret.”

“An unusual protagonist, a timely crime, and outstanding writing make Lori Rader-Day’s The Black Hour a stand-out debut.”

“Secrets lie behind every loop, slant, and swirl of The Day I Died, Lori Rader-Day’s compelling story of a handwriting analyst searching for a lost boy. Richly written, complex, and imaginative…this is a perfect read for fans of Mary Higgins Clark.”

“Lori Rader-Day is so ferociously talented that it kind of makes me mad. Not fair! The Day I Died is a terrific novel—gripping and twisty and beautifully layered. It kept me locked up and locked in from the very first word to the very last.”

“Mary Higgins Clark Award winner Rader-Day’s (Little Pretty Things) third novel will thrill readers who can’t get enough of the psychological suspense genre.”

“Beautiful prose and tack-sharp observations round out this slow-burning but thought-provoking meditation on the ravages of domestic violence.”

“[T]he story is compelling, the characters interesting, and the theme of a mother’s love universal.”
