About the Author

"Rice's compelling heroine and crisp prose lift her brisk thriller..." --Kirkus Reviews

"[A] gripping psychological thriller...Prepare to be up all night reading." --Publishers Weekly

"Decades-old crimes lead to current murder in a case unwound through the efforts of strong women. With a core of appealing characters, bestselling author Rice--known for domestic fiction and romance--has the makings of a promising mystery series here." --Booklist

"The Shadow Box is a heart-stopping yet enthralling breath of sea air, with as much dark beauty as one of Claire Beaudry Chase's own shadow boxes. It's also a resolute testimonial of inner strength, no matter how far from our plots and plans life takes us." --The Big Thrill

"The Shadow Box is a captivating read as much for its illuminating portrayal of domestic disenchantment as for its requisite, and robustly handled, mystery elements. Ultimately, Luanne Rice has given us a deeply affecting meditation on how we both lose and find ourselves, proving once again that she's a luminary in any, and all, literary realms of her choosing." --Criminal Element

"The Shadow Box is Luanne Rice at her dazzling best. Filled with dark family secrets and wells of deep emotion, this novel will stick with you long after you've finished reading." --Harlen Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Run Away

"As always, Luanne Rice gives us characters so real they feel like family and families so flawed they give us chills. Shocking, compassionate, and told with the unerring eye of a true and gifted observer, The Shadow Box will keep you turning the pages long past your bedtime." --Tami Hoag, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Boy

"A clever protagonist in extreme danger pitted against a cruel and powerful circle made the stakes in The Shadow Box so high I could barely stop reading for a drink of water. Luanne Rice creates a thrillingly compelling tale of common cruelty, high ambition, and the courage it takes to oppose them. Well done!" --Barbara O'Neal, Wall Street Journal and USA Today bestselling author of When We Believed in Mermaids

"Every family has secrets, but in Luanne Rice's clever thriller, The Shadow Box, the truth won't set you free--it will put you in a shallow grave...particularly if you live in the posh Connecticut enclave of Catamount Bluffs, where corruption, kidnapping, and murder are only a few of the community's hidden sins." --Lee Goldberg, #1 New York Times bestselling author
