New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan’s latest electrifying novel of suspense, Poisonous, “has it all—thrills, chills and [a] bold and powerful heroine” (Lisa Unger).
When teenage Internet bully Ivy Lake fell off a cliff, few people cared—except her developmentally-challenged eighteen-year-old step-brother, Tommy. In spite of her occasional cruelty, Tommy loved her. Now it’s been a year since Ivy’s disappearance and the police still have no answers: Was it suicide, an accident, or something more sinister?This isn’t the type of case investigative reporter Maxine Revere normally takes on, but when she receives a heartbreaking plea from Tommy, Max feels driven to help. At first, the police are willing to cooperate as she looks for clues about what happened to Ivy. But once Max delves deeper into the investigation, and learns more about Tommy and his dysfunctional family, the more she thinks she’s taken on an impossible task: this may be the one case she can’t solve. If Ivy was murdered, it was exceptionally well-planned … and that kind of killer could be hiding in plain sight and plotting the next act of violence. Max believes the truth is the only path to justice. Will finding it get her killed?
