Those looking for romantic-thriller nirvana will find it in this standalone from Thompson (To the Grave). When Brynn Wilder and Mark, her brother, were in their teens, their father was murdered and posthumously declared Maryland’s infamous Genessa Point Killer. Brynn managed to move on and become a novelist, but Mark remained mired in the shame and blame . Eighteen years later, Mark has decided to return to Genessa Point, his deceptively pastoral Chesapeake Bay hometown, determined to clear his father’s name. Brynn, now living in Miami, is sufficiently worried about Mark to follow him to Genessa Point, where she learns that he’s suddenly disappeared. Reluctantly, she turns to Sheriff Garrett Dane, son of the sheriff who convinced the locals of her father’s guilt. Sinister voice-distorted phone calls and threats ensue, driving Brynn and Garrett into each other’s arms. A kid, a dog, and Steve Winwood’s plaintive eponymous song round out an excellent read. Agent: Pamela Ahearn, Ahearn Agency. (Feb.)
