A Dark Heart-Pounding Thriller With Brilliant Plotting, Continuous Suspense, and a Jaw-Dropping Finale!When a murder suspect escapes indictment on a technicality, Agent Leah Hudson is forced to shift her focus to a new task, a cold case. Five years after Gloria Stone disappears, Hudson must piece together the final days of her life, but Gloria was no ordinary girl. Shortly after surviving a brutal gangrape on her twenty-first birthday, the affluent wine heiress vanished, her car abandoned in a supermarket parking lot. With the help of her onetime mentor, Hudson retraces the steps of an old investigation, determined to succeed where all others have failed. Making her way through a slew of once discounted suspects, she edges closer to a horrifying truth – Gloria wasn’t alone…there are other victims, and a misogynistic serial killer continues to lurk in the shadows of the Central Valley, threatening the lives of young women who fit his sick and twisted M.O. Mourning Gloria brings together the elements of a thriller and a murder mystery into one bone-chilling tale that examines the darkest depths of human nature.
