The Doubt Factory

A page-turning thriller of dangerous attraction and unscrupulous lies

From a New York Times bestselling author and National Book Award finalist comes a page-turning thriller with a dark romantic twist that bestselling author Cory Doctorow declared will have you “nailed to your seat.

But could her dad really be a bad guy at the helm of an organization that covers up the deadly wrongdoings of some of the country’s most rich and powerful? Alix has to make an impossible choice between her father and the mysterious young man she’s not only falling for, but who’s asking her to blow the whistle on the man who raised her. This Edgar Award and Locus Award nominee will make you wonder: could someone you have loved and have known for your whole life actually have the heart of a killer?
