The Edge of Lost by Kristina McMorris

"An absorbing, addictive read."--Beatriz Williams

"Will grab your heart on page one and won't let go until the end. I absolutely love this book, and so will you." --Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants

From bestselling author Kristina McMorris comes an ambitious and heartrending story of immigrants, deception, and second chances.

On a cold night in October 1937, searchlights cut through the darkness around Alcatraz. A prison guard's only daughter—one of the youngest civilians who lives on the island—has gone missing. Tending the warden's greenhouse, convicted bank robber Tommy Capello waits anxiously. Only he knows the truth about the little girl's whereabouts, and that both of their lives depend on the search's outcome.

Almost two decades earlier and thousands of miles away, a young boy named Shanley Keagan ekes out a living as an aspiring vaudevillian in Dublin pubs. Talented and shrewd, Shan dreams of shedding his dingy existence and finding his real father in America. The chance finally comes to cross the Atlantic, but when tragedy strikes, Shan must summon all his ingenuity to forge a new life in a volatile and foreign world.

Skillfully weaving these two stories, Kristina McMorris delivers a compelling novel that moves from Ireland to New York to San Francisco Bay. As her finely crafted characters discover the true nature of loyalty, sacrifice, and betrayal, they are forced to confront the lies we tell—and believe—in order to survive.



"Kristina McMorris takes us on a thrilling ride from the Emerald Isle, to the boroughs of New York, to the 'Rock' of Alcatraz. I found myself thoroughly immersed in her richly evocative settings, just as I was captivated by the pure humanity of her characters as they struggled for redemption. This book is a wonderful read!"--David Gillham, New York Times bestselling author of City of Women

"I adore everything that Kristina McMorris writes and this book is no exception."--Jennifer Robson, author of Somewhere in France

"A beautifully told story about a young man's journey through adversity and loss with an exhilarating ending that I couldn't put down and stayed up well past my bedtime to finish.--Charles Belfoure, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Architect


"McMorris's strong pacing keeps the two stories zipping along and all its many strings connected for a gratifying conclusion."--Kirkus Reviews


"Impeccably researched and beautifully written." --Karen White


"An absolutely lovely debut novel filled with endearing characters and lively descriptions. Fans of World War II romantic fiction will definitely enjoy this fast-paced story."—Kristin Hannah
