Tell me, Reeve, what are you really afraid of?
Reeve St Claire was abducted when she was twelve years old and held in captivity for four years. Now, in her twenties, she has a fragile stability but with the help of her psychiatrist, she has started to build a life of independence. But she will never shake off the terror and memory of the monster she believes is behind bars.
When Tilly Cavanaugh is rescued from a basement having suffered a similar experience, her parents call Reeve to ask for her help in helping their daughter rediscover a ‘normal’ life. But it is only when two other girls go missing that the police confirm the link and that there is a serial abductor in their midst.
Reeve knows that she alone has the knowledge which will help to find the perpetrator - but can she overcome her demons to discover the truth?
The Edge of Normal is a haunting psychological thriller with the impact of a modern day Silence of the Lambs.
