In this debut psychological thriller, two women on opposite sides of the law delve into the heart of a years-old crime in order to stop a future one. Claire Fontaine is convinced that her ex-husband killed their teenage daughter all those years back and believes he’s capable of killing again. When she sees him move in with another woman, to play stepfather for a girl the same age as the one she lost, Claire tries desperately to warn the new bride of the danger her family is in. But when the woman dismisses her admonishments, she feels she must take matters into her own hands and stop the crime she failed to stop before. Sloan Wilson left the LAPD to work as a “sin eater,” a contractor for hire who specializes in cleaning up inconvenient situations―situations which, for whatever reason, are better handled outside the law. Like, for example, an ex-wife who stalks her former husband, throws paint on his door, and makes vague, violent threats to his new wife. A domestic dispute like that can get messy when the cops are called; plus, there is a risk that their presence will aggravate the woman in question. As Sloan investigates her newest mission, however, she finds that there is more to it than meets the eye, uncovering a history of trauma that casts aspersions on the stories of both Claire and Sloan’s client. In a case where objective truth is increasingly muddled by passions, suspicions, and fears, she soon loses the ability to distinguish fact from fiction. But Sloan knows one thing for certain: sometimes the only way to prevent a crime is by committing one.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A piercing, high-speed nightmare best consumed in a single breathless sitting.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“My idea of a good psychological suspense story is one that messes with your head. No cheap thrills, just lots of disorienting plot twists that have you doubting your own mental faculties. An Inconvenient Woman, a remarkably polished first mystery by Stéphanie Buelens, succeeds at these mind games with a taut plot.” New York Times
“With twists aplenty, vivid characters, and a palpable sense of looming disaster, readers will find themselves wondering whose story to believe.” Booklist
“By turns lyrical and enraged but always poignant, An Inconvenient Woman provides relentless thrills.” Lyndsay Faye, author of The Paragon Hotel
“The powerful women at the beating heart of this beautifully wrought thriller…give the old school noir vibe a thoroughly modern energy.” Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author
“Absolutely stunning! A brilliant concept meets perfect execution in An Inconvenient Woman.” Jeffery Deaver, New York Times bestselling author
“Old problems told by conflicting voices. A new, sharp view of female reality.” Anne Perry, New York Times bestselling author
“Beautifully, beautifully written and suspenseful from the chilling opening until the end.” James Patterson, #1 New York Times bestselling author
