Was it him?
Olivia Richards isn’t sure, but she’s afraid the past has caught up with her.
What happened when she was a child should never have happened, and it wouldn’t have if her mother had protected her. But she hadn’t, not the way a mother should. Not the way Olivia protects her son.
Taking care of Brian isn’t easy. She has to juggle work, Brian’s schedule, his propensity to wander due to a brain injury, and an alcoholic ex-husband who wants to reenter their lives.
When newspaper clippings about the deaths of boys her son’s age start showing up on her windshield, her tight control begins to fray. What do the messages mean? Who is leaving them?
As past and present collide, Olivia’s anxiety turns to terror. Death threatens. She must protect her son, but from whom?
Greta Boris’s The Scent of Wrath has been called taut and atmospheric. If you loved Sarah A. Denzil’s Silent Child, or Lisa Scottoline’s Look Again, you won’t be able to put it down.
