“Fascinating. . . .Handles this touchy material with integrity, tugging on our hearts even as she ties our nerves in knots. Salter writes with a chilling authority.” —Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book ReviewForensic psychologist Breeze Copens has a gift. She not only hears the truth, she also sees it, through the rare psychological condition synethesia. So she knows when Daryl Collins—a born-again but remorseless con jailed in Seattle for armed robbery—is lying. What she doesn't know is the identity of a little girl in a blue dress with yellow daisies who appears suddenly in her line of vision during her interview with Daryl. And Daryl isn't telling.
A heart-stopping thriller, its twists unexpected, its suspense mounting as the steely Breeze attempts to make hard evidence of her intuition, Truth Catcher sets the lovely, red-haired forensic expert on an increasingly treacherous course. Matching wits with devious and deviant criminal minds, Breeze tracks her quarry fearlessly, only to discover, chillingly, in Edgar nominee Anna Salter’s compelling fifth novel, that she’s the prey.
