TAWNY LINDHOLM THRILLER #8
You can’t trust your eyes.
Video captures a daring prison break by a young Native American inmate and his lover, Lucille Ellwine, a middle-aged, biracial corrections officer. The videos go viral on social media and every cop in Montana is hunting them down.
Lucille begs for help from investigator Tawny Lindholm and her high-powered attorney husband Tillman Rosenbaum. Lucille swears the escape never happened, denies the romance, and claims the inmate was murdered.
Then she disappears, fleeing a brutal killer who wants to silence her and the cops who are ready to shoot first and ask questions later.
Nothing Lucille says makes sense until Tillman’s son Judah suggests the videos are frauds. Judah (who’s 18 going on 13) knows enough about deep fakes to get into deep trouble.
Between rescuing Judah and trying to help Lucille, Tawny and Tillman plunge into a sinister alternate reality where videos are illusions, but death is all too real.
Torn from the headlines, this timely psychological thriller carries the reader on a dark journey where you can’t trust your own eyes.
