“Chilling psychological acuity…Part of the fun is figuring out how everything ties together in the end.”—New York Times Book Review

“Absolutely splendid storytelling, a book to entertain, to immerse, and to challenge.”—A. J. Finn, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

Bestselling author Wendy Walker returns with a new dark, twisty, and highly addictive psychological thriller about a cold case detective who finds herself the target of an obsessed stalker after saving his life.

Detective Elise Sutton is a forensics expert with a knack for solving cold cases and a deep knowledge of the criminal mind. She prides herself on being rational and in control, until a crisis at a department store leaves her steeped in guilt and self-doubt about whether she did the right thing to save a man’s life.

Elise is hailed as a hero, but she doesn’t feel like one. She soon grows numb, even to her husband and daughters, as she sets out to find the one man who might know the truth. When she finds him—or did he find her?—their connection sets off a terrifying game of cat and mouse, threatening Elise and the people she loves most.

Wendy Walker has crafted a brilliantly complicated, absorbing, and tension-filled psychological thriller with a shocking final twist that rivals The Woman in the Window and The Silent Patient.

Praise

“Chilling psychological acuity…Part of the fun is figuring out how everything ties together in the end.” New York Times Book Review

“‘What would you do?’ asks this searing thriller in its opening pages. And then, just a few chapters later, another question, more unnerving: ‘What would you do now?’ Most novels would’ve quit by this point, but most novels aren’t written by Wendy Walker, whose earlier stories of psychological suspense—humane, inquisitive, and sinister, often in the same sentence—showcased a rare talent. In What Remains, Walker smashes that showcase to rubble. I can’t recall the last time a thriller kept me so alert, as though the muzzle of a gun were pressed to my temple. While the novel rotates through assorted genres (cop drama, psychological suspense, stalker scares—each meticulously evoked and arranged), this is from beginning to end absolutely splendid storytelling, a book to entertain, to immerse, and to challenge.” A. J. Finn, New York Times bestselling author of The Woman in the Window

“Finely crafted characters, great plotting, and so much tension you’ll have trouble catching your breath. This is Wendy Walker at her best!” B. A. Paris, New York Times bestselling author of Behind Closed Doors

“Perfectly plotted and beautifully written, I was gripped from the first page.” Alice Feeney, New York Times bestselling author

“A twisted game of obsession and secrets, What Remains starts with a bang—literally—and doesn’t let you go until the final, exquisite resolution. This book is Wendy Walker at her best!” Julie Clark, New York Times bestselling author of The Lies I Tell and The Last Flight

“I couldn’t put this book down once I started. Thoroughly enjoyable from the first page to the shocking conclusion, Wendy Walker’s What Remains is an addictive, immersive, propulsive thriller. Not only is Walker at the top of her game, she is absolutely one of the genre’s best.” Jennifer Hillier, award-winning and internationally bestselling author of Things We Do in the Dark

“Incredibly tense, utterly authentic, and endlessly intriguing—I dare you to put this book down.” Catherine Ryan Howard, internationally bestselling author of 56 Days

“What Remains begins with a (literal) bang and doesn’t let up until the final shocking conclusion. Elise Sutton is our perfect guide through this labyrinth—tough but vulnerable, smart but a bit lost in the plot of her own life. Walker immediately made me want to know what was happening, but I never guessed THAT ending! A tour de force.” Catherine McKenzie, USA Today bestselling author of You Can’t Catch Me and Have You Seen Her

“In addition to being a heart-pounding page-turner, Wendy Walker’s What Remains is an exploration of love and fidelity and of the secrets that bind us and tear us apart. The engine that keeps us riveted is not simply the masterful plot but our empathy for Walker’s complex characters as they test the fragility of the ties that tether them to not only the ones they love but to their own identities. A gorgeous and compelling emotional thriller.” Jean Kwok, New York Times bestselling author of Searching for Sylvie Lee

“Gabra Zackman and Peter Ganim share the double first-person narration of Wendy Walker’s new thriller…The performances are smooth and accomplished.” AudioFile
