Gr 9 Up—A fast-paced, exciting thriller full of twists and turns that will keep teens guessing until the very end. Beth Anne Reimer's father might be the serial killer called The Wife Collector. But she doesn't think it can really be true. Beth Anne's father has always treated her well and made sure she had everything she ever wanted—he was the best dad. But 10 years ago, the police took him away. And since then, after his escape, she never heard from him again. Now she is Bex Andrews, and she has a new father, family, and life. And she is hundreds of miles away from being Beth Anne. But just as she starts to get comfortable, signs that point to The Wife Collector start popping up. And she's seeing signs of her father everywhere, too. Could he be back? And could The Wife Collector actually be her father? This is an incredibly quick read that will keep teen readers on the edge of their seats.
VERDICT For YA collections looking to expand their thriller offerings.
