Overview
"Hasn't he lived long enough? Why not? I could take him like a thief in the night.""
"This is how the Thief thinks. He serves death, the vacuum, the unknown. He's always waiting. Always there.
Seventeen-year-old Nina Barrows knows all about the Thief. She's intimately familiar with his hunting methods: how he stalks and kills at random, how he disposes of his victims' bodies in an abandonedmine in the deepest, most desolate part of a desert.
Now, for the first time, Nina has the chance to do something about the serial killer that no one else knows exists. With the help of her former best friend, Warren, she tracks the Thief two thousand miles, to his home turf-the deserts of New Mexico.
But the man she meets there seems nothing like the brutal sociopath with whom she's had a disturbing connection her whole life. To anyone else, Dylan Shadwell is exactly what he appears to be: a young veteran committed to his girlfriend and her young daughter. As Nina spends more time with him, she begins to doubt the truth she once held as certain: Dylan Shadwell is the Thief. She even starts to wonder . . . what if there "is "no Thief?
From debut author Margot Harrison comes a brilliantly twisted psychological thriller that asks which is more terrifying: the possibility that your nightmares are real . . . or the possibility that they begin and end with you?

A teen tracks a serial killer in Harrison’s terrific debut thriller. Sleep hasn’t been kind to 17-year-old Nina Barrows, and she has taken to using pills to avoid it as much as possible. There’s a killer on the loose who calls himself the Thief in the Night, and Nina has insight into his next moves—her dreams give her a direct line into his life. Calling on Warren Witter, the friend who is hooking her up with her pills, she plans to stop the killer before he strikes again, but his identity remains elusive. Under the guise of meeting her birth mother for the first time, Nina and Warren set out on a road trip from Vermont to New Mexico that will lead them straight to the killer. Harrison expertly shapes a sharp, tense narrative, told alternately in Nina and Warren’s points of view, as Nina confronts terrifying personal truths and must fight for everything she holds dear. Taut storytelling and believable characters make this a standout mystery, with paranormal notes adding another layer of complexity. Ages 14–up. Agent: Jessica Sinsheimer, Sarah Jane Freymann Literary. (July)
