BREAKDOWN is a unique and groundbreaking four-book suspense series that will keep you turning pages until the killer is finally exposed.
In this explosive new miniseries, the idyllic community of Shutter Lake, nestled in the peaceful Sierra Nevada Mountains, is rocked by a shocking murder. Four women, friends who moved to the area to find healing and solace, must now dig deep and overcome the scars of past troubles to find a ruthless killer.
THE BREAKDOWN ERUPTS…Dr. Luciana Perez thought she hit the jackpot when she landed the position at the Shutter Lake Medical Clinic. Until her friend Sylvia Cole is murdered and the authorities come calling, certain that Luciana has more information about the crime.
But Luciana only knows Sylvia had secrets she wasn’t inclined to share. Secrets that had Sylvia seriously worried. Secrets someone was willing to kill to keep buried. Every day that the killer isn’t found, Luciana’s fear tightens like a noose around her neck: fear of her own secrets being exposed, fear of becoming the next victim, and fear that the murderer will irrevocably shatter the idyllic peace and security of their beautiful town.
Read an Excerpt:
Ana parked in the drive and cut the engine, her thoughts still spinning. Through the years, she’d found a long, quiet drive immensely helpful, allowing her problems to percolate in the back of her mind while she focused on the roadway. This rugged, gorgeous area allowed her plenty of scenic options—she just had to make the time. Despite the days growing shorter, maybe she could get away tomorrow after the press conference in time to enjoy a sunset drive through the mountains.
A rap on her window had her jumping, heart slamming against her ribcage. Griff McCabe, Shutter Lake Chief of Police motioned for her to roll down the window.
“You okay?” he asked when she complied.
“No.” Ana breathed in the brisk air, letting the soft damp of the autumn night cool her heated cheeks. “I mean, yes. Of course. Just lost in thought.” She breathed in again, realizing McCabe didn’t smell of beer or fresh mouthwash. It was difficult to assess in the darkness, but his eyes might even be clear, rather than bloodshot per the usual. “What are you doing here?”
It was common knowledge in Shutter Lake that the chief spent most of his evenings pouring beer after beer into his body at the Rabbit Hole. From what she heard, the pattern was occasionally interrupted by a shot of whiskey. He didn’t come to her wellness classes and as far as she could tell, his only effort at exercise came from the walk home from the bar each night. None of her advanced medical degrees were necessary to diagnose that the man was troubled.
Year after year at his mandatory annual physicals she’d urged him to back off the copious amounts of alcohol. There were treatment options he could benefit from without risking the position that suited him so well.
“Your alarm system went off. The company called the station to respond. I was closer than the officer on duty.”
Too many things struck her as wrong about his reply. First, the Rabbit Hole was a windowless pub just off the town square and a block away from the police station. Technically, anyone in the station would have been closer to her house. Unless McCabe had been on this side of town already. She and Laney had been physically closer as well, though Laney was off duty.
“I wasn’t informed of the alarm,” she said, voicing the safest response.
