From the bestselling author of the Annabelle Schwartzman series comes a chilling story of a woman with a forgotten past and a town with dark secrets.
After surviving a car accident on an icy road in Hagen, North Dakota, Lily Baker regains consciousness with no idea where or who she is. Scattered Bible verses and the image of a man lying in a pool of blood haunt her memory.
The same night of the accident, a young woman is murdered and tossed in a dumpster. Kylie Milliard, Hagen’s only detective, doesn’t immediately recognize the victim, but Kylie soon discovers that Lily and the dead woman share a dark past…if only Lily could remember what it was.
Lily and Kylie both want answers. But Kylie has to play by the book. Lily has to play it safe. And the more Lily learns about her identity, the more she fears the truth.
“White Out is a superb thriller—intense, intricate, and so intriguing. Detective Kylie Milliard is a badass, and Girard is a one heck of a storyteller. The start of a fabulous new series.” —J.T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author of Good Girls Lie
“Girard excels at creating kick-ass heroines in high-stakes, high-tension thrillers. Lily Baker and Detective Kylie Millard ensure White Out is the start to another white-knuckle series.” —Robert Dugoni, #1 Amazon and international bestselling author of the Tracy Crosswhite series
“I loved White Out from page one until the jaw-dropping conclusion. I do this for a living, and Danielle Girard spun me in so many circles I was dizzy when it was over. The pacing is pitch-perfect, the plot taut as a high-wire, and the characters will stick with you long after you’ve read the shocking finale. I can’t wait to read Danielle’s next adventure in the sleepy little town of Hagen, North Dakota, which calls to mind Benjamin Franklin’s famous quote: ‘Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead.’” —DJ Palmer, USA Today bestselling author of Saving Meghan
“With breakneck pacing, compelling characters, and serpentine twists you’ll never see coming, White Out is a must-read thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Fantastic!” —Liv Constantine, internationally bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish
