She says he is a killer. He says she is delusional. Somebody is lying.

When Claire Fontaine learns that her ex-husband Simon is marrying again, to a woman with a teenage daughter, her blood runs cold. She is sure that years ago Simon molested her own daughter and was responsible for her mysterious death. She can't let him get away with it a second time. Vandalism, harassment; whatever it takes, Claire will expose him.

Simon doesn't know where Claire got this delusion from; her daughter's death was ruled a suicide, but she has always blamed herself - is she just lashing out? Wanting to protect his new fiancee, he hires Sloane Wilson, an ex-cop turned 'sin-eater', whose job it is to handle delicate cases without getting the police involved, to get Claire off his back.

Sloane must navigate the wreckage of Claire and Simon's marriage to discover the truth. Two people with conflicting stories and a whole lot of reasons to want to hurt each other. Is she crazy or is he manipulative? And can Sloane stay clear-headed enough to figure it out?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Packed with suspense and surprises, it is hard to put down * Daily Mail *
Remarkably polished first mystery * New York Times *
A hangman's noose of a thriller, airtight and inescapable, each strand expertly braided, each loop perfectly knotted. Harrowing yet humane - a novel as provocative as it is suspenseful -- A.J. Finn
An Inconvenient Woman is beautifully, beautifully written and suspenseful from the chilling opening until the end -- James Patterson
Absolutely stunning! A brilliant concept meets perfect execution in An Inconvenient Woman, a twisting thriller in which a looming tragedy and a horrific crime from the past are masterfully woven together. It's hard to believe that this is Buelens's first novel; I truly hope more are in the future-preferably the near future -- Jeffery Deaver
Old problems told by conflicting voices. A new, sharp view of female realty. Sin Eater! What a fascinating concept. I could not put it down! -- Anne Perry
Addictive, immersive, unputdownable. The powerful women at the beating heart of this beautifully-wrought thriller - women with grudges and looking for a certain brand of justice - give the old school noir vibe a thoroughly modern energy. As deep and human as it is rocket-paced, An Inconvenient Woman is a slick, accomplished debut -- Lisa Unger
Stephanie Buelens has the freshness and originality of a new writer, and the style and assuredness of an old master. For true fans of the psychological thriller, An Inconvenient Woman is as good a debut novel as I've read in years. Beautifully written, tense, taut, and tightly plotted, with fully developed characters who may or may not be telling the whole truth. A true mind-twister that will keep you guessing until the end -- Nelson DeMille
By turns lyrical and enraged, but always poignant, An Inconvenient Woman provides relentless thrills. Buelens will inevitably invite comparisons to Liane Moriarty and Gillian Flynn - a taut, gripping noir mystery that is as timely as it is ferocious -- Lyndsay Faye
A dark and riveting thriller with unexpected twists at every turn. I loved the two women at the heart of the story -- Camilla Lachberg
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this masterpiece of apparent inevitability and tension building to anybody * Mystery People *
