The Night Side
by M.M. DeLuca

A spine-tingling psychological thriller bursting with gasp-worthy revelations. When her mother goes missing, a woman returns to her childhood home after twenty years. But is she walking into a trap?

Ruby had to get away. Get away from her mother – a phoney medium and psychic scammer. Get away from her lies, her manipulation, her twisted desire to ruin people’s lives.

So, at eighteen, Ruby left her home in Stoneybrook, Montana and vowed she’d never return.

Now, twenty years later, she’s back.

Her mother is missing. Presumed dead. But Ruby isn’t so sure. Has Ida saved her final, darkest scheme for her own daughter? The jaw-dropping truth will shake Ruby to her core . . .

Readers of Colleen Hoover’s Verity, Tana French’s The Searcher and Ashley Flowers’ All Good People Here will love this frighteningly dark, page-turning novel of suspense.
