New York Times bestselling author Carla Norton joins us in this episode of CrimeFiction.FM to discuss her new book, the second in her Reeve LeClaire thriller series, WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER.
Carla explains the background of her extremely unique protagonist, Reeve LeClaire.
The first book in the series, THE EDGE OF NORMAL, was a Thriller Award finalist for best first novel.
Carla shares the story of her second book, WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER.
Carla brings a unique perspective to the series, having co-written the story of Colleen Stan in a non-fiction best seller called Perfect Victim.
We discuss the difference between writing about real life monsters and the fictional versions that inhabit her Reeve LeClaire novels.
From the Publisher:
Flint is safely locked up in Olshaker Psychiatric Hospital, where he belongs. He is walking the grounds of the forensic unit, performing his strange but apparently harmless rituals. It seems that he is still suffering the effects of the head injury he suffered in the car crash that freed Reeve seven years ago. Post-concussive syndrome, they call it.
For all that Flint seems like a model patient, he has long been planning his next move. When the moment arrives, he gets clean away from the hospital before the alarm even sounds. And Reeve is shocked out of her new life by her worst nightmare: Her kidnapper has escaped. Less than 24 hours later, Flint kills someone from his past–and Reeve’s blocked memories jolt back into consciousness. As much as she would like to forget him, she knows this criminal better than anyone else. When Flint evades capture, baffling authorities and leaving a bloody trail from the psychiatric lock-up to the forests of Washington state, Reeve suddenly realizes that she is the only one who can stop him.
Reeve is an irresistibly brave and believable heroine in Carla Norton’s heart-stopping new thriller, What Doesn’t Kill Her, about a young woman who learns to fight back.
