It’s no wonder Mary Willis Walker has won Edgar and Agatha Awards. Each of her best-selling novels creates powerful suspense from the very first image. Here, Texas crime journalist Molly Cates, who unraveled terrifying cases in The Red Scream and Under the Beetle’s Cellar, must track down and confront demons from her past to thwart present dangers.

Although she is a successful writer busy interviewing homeless women for an upcoming article, Molly has never recovered from her father’s mysterious death 28 years ago. As she speaks with bag ladies and matrons, scavengers and senators, Molly sees her own obsessions and fears reflected in their eyes. But against this backdrop of damaged lives, someone is brewing a poisonous scheme—one that threatens scores of innocent people.

Through narrator C.J. Critt’s crisp pacing and dramatic performance, you’ll be caught up in the nonstop action and unpredictable twists that push Molly in her search for information. From the first glimpse of blood shining in moonlight to the final memory of her father Molly types into her computer, All the Dead Lie Down is suspense fiction at its best.
