Wendy Corsi Staub on Book Case TV with Host Frederic Colier:
I’ve just finished writing a brand new trio of standalone suspense novels for HarperCollins. The three books are connected not by characters, setting, or shared plotlines, but by theme: they all explore the world of social networking and the question: Do you really know who’s lurking behind that screen name?
The first book, THE GOOD SISTER (Harper, October 2013), has been optioned for television by Fox. The suburban noir plot involves cyberbullying and unfolds against the backdrop of a creepy old house, an all-girls Catholic school in western New York, and a fictionalized Facebook network called Peopleportal.
Kirkus gives THE GOOD SISTER a rave review, saying, “Fans of Criminal Minds will especially love this book.” RT Bookreviews says, "The way that the antagonist of this thriller manipulates victims via the Internet is downright chilling. Using multiple points of view, the novel reveals a twisted mind intent on
making a group of adults pay for their teenaged 'sins.' The suspense keeps you turning pages." And from Fresh Fiction: "THE GOOD SISTER is another example of just how good a writer Wendy Corsi Staub is. A creepy set-up and a continuing mystery with little clues dropped along the way make for a definite page turner. Be warned, too, that just when you think you've got things figured out; you don't! There's a serious twist at the end of THE GOOD SISTER that you would never have seen coming no matter how adept you are at guessing who is guilty of what in plotlines. I guarantee that it is a definite head-shaking, jaw-dropping moment when you finally reach the explanation of what has been happening and the reasons behind it."
The second book, THE PERFECT STRANGER (Harper, July, 2014), is about a group of online bloggers who have never met in person—until they come together at the funeral for a murdered fellow blogger and realize that her death might not have been as random as it seemed.
The third book, THE BLACK WIDOW (Harper, late 2014/early 2015) is set in the world of online matchmaking. Still pining for her ex-husband, a reluctant divorcee agrees to post an online profile, and soon discovers that local singles who use the same digital dating website are disappearing one by one.
In addition to my six backlist thrillers that recently made their e-book debut, my 2006 Wendy Markham Christmas Time Travel romance IF ONLY IN MY DREAMS is now available in digital format for your Kindle.
