'AN UNSETTLING THRILLER' BOOKLIST
'LUSHLY WRITTEN' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
In this gripping New Zealand thriller, New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh takes you into the twisted world of an exclusive cul-de-sac.
When socialite Nina Rai disappeared without a trace, everyone wrote it off as another trophy wife tired of her wealthy husband. But now her bones have turned up in the shadowed green of the forest that surrounds her elite neighborhood, a haven of privilege and secrets that's housed the same influential families for decades.
The rich live here, along with those whose job it is to make their lives easier. And somebody knows what happened to Nina one rainy night ten years ago. Her son Aarav heard a chilling scream that night, and he's determined to uncover the ugly truth that lives beneath the moneyed elegance . . . but no one is ready for the murderous secrets about to crawl out of the dark.
And the dead don't keep secrets.

Full of twists, turns, and genuine emotion, Quiet in Her Bones cements Singh's place in the modern pantheon of suspense. * Crime Read *
Singh perfectly conveys the sleek architecture amid an unforgiving New Zealand forest...an unsettling thriller that deserves a wide audience. * Booklist *
Nervy and unsettling noir [with] a legitimately and believably unreliable narrator. * The New York Times Book Review *
Popular romance author Singh shifts to a new genre, New Zealand gothic, in which nearly every character -- including the dense, ferocious landscape -- has something to hide, and studying them is nearly as fascinating and compelling as solving the multifaceted mystery. Astute, insightful, and descriptive storytelling; a strong step in a new direction for Singh * Kirkus on A MADNESS OF SUNSHINE *
Lush, atmospheric, and addictive, A Madness of Sunshine seduces with its beautiful sense of place and layered, compelling characters, then hooks you right in with a riveting noir mystery. When a beautiful girl goes missing and a dark past collides with the brutal present, the truth is as harsh and unforgiving as the landscape in which Nalini Singh's twisting tale is set * Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author *
Nalini Singh's latest novel, A Madness of Sunshine, has more twists and turns than the rugged New Zealand coastline on which it's set . . . Chocked full of unique characters and red herrings, this book is just my kind of pulse-pounding mystery. I loved it! Though A Madness of Sunshine is the first novel of Ms. Singh's I've read, it won't be the last * Lisa Jackson, New York Times bestselling author *
Singh sustains tension throughout, delivering a lushly written, multilayered mystery that will keep readers guessing. Susan Isaacs fans, take note. -- Publishers Weekly
