Isabel Allende

Literary legend Isabel Allende (Maya’s Notebook, 2013) will surprise readers with her very first crime novel. 17-year-old Amanda Ryan, a high school senior headed for MIT, is the leader of Ripper, an online mystery game she plays with her friends around the world. But when a series of murders occur in San Francisco, Amanda plunges into the investigation, discovering before the police do that the ritualistic murders may be connected. But the case becomes personal when her mother, Indiana, vanishes. Could her disappearance be linked to the killer? Featuring elements of Scandinavian crime fiction, Allende’s latest is a nail-biting thriller.
