Black-Eyed Susans free pdf For fans of Laura Lippman and Gillian Flynn comes an electrifying novel of stunning psychological suspense. "I am the star of screaming headlines and campfire ghost stories.""I am one of the four Black-Eyed Susans.The lucky one." As a sixteen-year-old, Tessa Cartwright was found in a Texas field, barely alive amid a scattering of bones, with only fragments of memory as to how she got there. Ever since, the press has pursued her as the lone surviving Black-Eyed Susan, the nickname given to the murder victims because of the yellow carpet of wildflowers that flourished above their shared grave. Tessa s testimony about those tragic hours put a man on death row. Now, almost two decades later, Tessa is an artist and single mother. In the desolate cold of February, she is shocked to discover a freshly planted patch of black-eyed susans a summertime bloom just outside her bedroom window. Terrified at the implications that she sent the wrong man to prison and the real killer remains at large Tessa turns to the lawyers working to exonerate the man awaiting execution. But the flowers alone are not proof enough, and the forensic investigation of the still-unidentified bones is progressing too slowly. An innocent life hangs in the balance. The legal team appeals to Tessa to undergo hypnosis to retrieve lost memories and to share the drawings she produced as part of an experimental therapy shortly after her rescue. What they don t know is that Tessa and the scared, fragile girl she was have built a fortress of secrets. As the clock ticks toward the execution, Tessa fears for her sanity, but even more for the safety of her teenaged daughter. Is a serial killer still roaming free, taunting Tessa with a trail of clues? She has no choice but to confront old ghosts and lingering nightmares to finally discover what really happened that night. Shocking, intense, and utterly original, "Black-Eyed Susans" is a dazzling psychological thriller, seamlessly weaving past and present in a searing tale of a young woman whose harrowing memories remain in a field of flowers as a killer makes a chilling return to his garden. Praise for "Black-Eyed Susans" A masterful thriller that shouldn t be missed . . . brilliantly conceived, beautifully executed . . . [Julia] Heaberlin s work calls to mind that of Gillian Flynn. Both writers published impressive early novels that were largely overlooked, and then one that couldn t be: Flynn s "Gone Girl" and now Heaberlin s "Black-Eyed Susans." Don t miss it. "The Washington Post" Heaberlin does a neat job, in "Black-Eyed Susans, " of making us care. . . . [She s] a pro who strengthens her theme of judicial prejudice by referring to the O. J. Simpson trial and by drawing our attention to the morbid regularity of executions in Texas prisons. "The New York Times Book Review" A terrific plot, matched by the quality of the writing and superbly paced tension. "The Times" (U.K.) A breakout book . . . Heaberlin maintains her tight grip on narrative control, expertly maintaining the delightful, nail-biting suspense. . . . It s her emerging talent as a masterful storyteller that sets this book apart. "Fort Worth Star-Telegram" Compelling . . . [one of] ten amazing books you "need "to read this summer. "Cosmopolitan "(U.K.) A tense, slow-burning, beautifully written novel of survival and hope. Highly recommended. William Landay, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Defending Jacob""
