Ellery Hathaway

In Joanna Schaffhausen’s thrilling mystery series, Ellery Hathaway is a police officer with a traumatic past—having survived the attentions of a serial killer. Patrolling the sleepy town of Woodbury, Massachusetts, she assists FBI profiler Reed Markham—who saved her from the psychopath years ago—in bringing murderers to justice.

“A gripping and powerful read. It is what we call an edge-of-your-seat, rollercoaster of a thriller. You will not be able to put it down before you finish it.”—The Washington Book Review (on The Vanishing Season)
