Award-winning author Alice Blanchard delivers the must-read literary thriller of the year-a twister of a tale about a detective trying to outwit a killer-and Mother Nature-in Tornado Alley. In the small town of Promise, Oklahoma, Chief of Police Charlie Grover has trouble on his hands. Located in the heart of TornadoAlley, Promise has just been hit by a major twister, leaving behind 40 million dollars worth of damage- and one grisly murder scene. Though the deaths of the Pepper family appear to be the result of flying debris, Charlie has a hunch they are victims of foul play. Autopsies quickly confirm his worst suspicions, and reveal that the killer has left behind a particularly twisted calling card. Charlie seeks help from Dr.Willa Bellman, an expert on killer storms. Together, they must track the path of a cunning killer who knows how to outwit science and technology-before the next storm hits.
