"SUSPENSEFUL GEMS... Nothing is as it first seems in these stories. They unfold at a spellbinding pace."The Seattle Times

"CHARLIE AND CONSTANCE ARE A WONDERFULLY REAL COUPLE... [These stories] are marked by Wilhelm's magic as a tale-spinner and her ability to make us care deeply about her characters."Minneapolis Star-Tribune

In five riveting short novels, those gentle seekers after justice, Constance Leidl and Charlie Meiklejohn, resolve haunting conundrums in which the cheerful face of American life no longer quite conceals underlying evil.

From the suburban Northeast to a beautiful hidden valley in the Rockies, from a luxury resort in Florida to Constance and Charlie's own backyard, Kate Wilhelm takes us on a chilling expedition through realms of psychological unease where even angels might fear to tread. Readers with a taste for the mysterious, the unusual, the unexplained, or the truth will find this collection sublime.

"PROVOCATIVE AND RIVETING... Wilhelm knows what readers like."Booklist
