With a fiercely original heroine and a plot that will keep you guessing until the very last page, Carla Norton's The Edge of Normal is an "impressive mystery...with psychological depth (Booklist, starred review)" that no reader will soon forget.

In many ways, Reeve LeClaire seems like a typical twenty-something woman: She has her own place in San Francisco, waitresses to pay the bills, and lives a pleasant, structured life. But Reeve is anything but normal. Ten years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive for four years. Her lucky escape made headlines-and since then, she's managed to rebuild her life, thanks in part to her brilliant psychiatrist, Ezra Lerner.

"A nail-biter." -People

An expert in captivity syndromes, Dr. Lerner asks Reeve to help a young girl, Tilly, who has suffered a similar ordeal. But soon everything Reeve has worked so hard to achieve-independence, anonymity, a normal life-comes crashing down. As she tries to help Tilly, she finds herself involved in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with a ruthless predator who always manages to be one step ahead of her. . . and is watching her every move. . .

"A perfect blend of literary style, psychological insight, and edge-of-the-seat thriller."-Jeffery Deaver
