Harper Collins is pleased to announce the digital publication of New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub’s “The Last to Know.” Staub is a specialist when it comes to crafting gripping thrillers, and The Last to Know (On-sale 10/16/12 | $3.99 | E- ISBN: 9780062230058) is no exception. Combining the terror of suburbia-gone-wrong with a relatable, girl-next-door protagonist, this story hooks readers in immediately, and does not let up until the very end.
Townsend Heights is the perfect small town. Sleepy, tree-lined streets, good schools, a quick commute to the city. The sort of peaceful, suburban existence Tasha Banks dreamed of living when she left her fast-paced career for full-time motherhood.
But now, Tasha's perfect dream is turning into a terrifying nightmare. Someone is targeting women in Townsend Heights--and not just any women. A serial killer is looking for a particular kind of prey...young, stay-at-home mothers...exactly like Tasha. One by one, Tasha's friends are disappearing, only to die in horrific ways. Suddenly, terror is transforming Townsend Heights into a sinister place of fear and foreboding--a place where evil lurks behind every corner, hiding behind the mask of a familiar face--a face that may be the last one Tasha ever sees...
Praise for Wendy Corsi Staub:
“Staub is boss when it comes to relaying fictionalized accounts of revulsion…Suspenseful, powerful, tense and-as usual-wonderfully written with an ending that will leave you guessing...A great read!”
—Suspense Magazine on Nightwatcher
“The thrills are near constant & combined with the waking nightmare state of 9/11, result in a high-tension and deeply visceral tale that will leave readers in a crippling state of uncertainty. The fear, the paranoia, the desperation--it leaps right off the page and gets under your skin.”
—Criminal Element on Nightwatcher
“If you like Mary Higgins Clark, you’ll love Wendy Corsi Staub!”
