The inventiveness of A Visit from the Goon Squad meets the down-the-rabbit-hole suspense of The Girl on the Train in this chilling, pulse-racing thriller from an electrifying new writer.
When the gleaming new Manderley Resort opens in twenty-four hours, Santa Barbara??s exclusive beachfront hotel will offer its patrons the ultimate in luxury and high-tech security. No indulgence has been ignored, no detail overlooked. But all the money in the world can??t guarantee safety. As hotel manager Tessa and her employees ready the hotel for its invitation-only grand opening, a killer is in their midst. One by one, staff are picked off with ruthless precision. And before the night is over, as Tessa desperately struggles to survive, it will become clear that the strangest and most terrible truth at Manderley is simply this: someone is watching.
With stunning ingenuity, Gina Wohlsdorf puts readers front and center as the elite resort becomes a house of horrors. Riveting to the final sentence, Security is fierce, wry, and impossible to put down. With a deep bow to the literary tradition of Stephen King, Edgar Allan Poe, and Daphne du Maurier, Wohlsdorf??s razor-wire prose blitzes readers with quick twists, sharp turns, and gasp-inducing terror. Security is at once a shocking thriller, a brilliant narrative puzzle, and a moving, multifaceted love story unlike any other.
“Grand Hotel meets Psycho in the age of surveillance: Gina Wohlsdorf??s Security is cinematically vivid, crisply written, and sharp enough to cut. As the body count rises, the question becomes, just who is telling this story? Lee Child fans, in particular, will be able to appreciate how brilliantly Wohlsdorf subverts our expectations of the action genre in this smart, shocking, poignant thriller.” ??"Emily Croy Barker, author of The Thinking Woman??s Guide to Real Magic
“Written in vivid and beautiful, nuanced language . . . Shocking and filled with Tarantino-ish dark humor . . . Like nothing else. Get ready.” ??"Ann Beattie, author of The State We??re In
“Original and imaginative . . . I predict Security will be this year??s The Girl on the Train.” ??"Sandra Brown, author of Friction
“Terrifying, sexy, dizzying, and impossible to look away from.” ??"Tim Johnston, author of Descent
