Amazon Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

An unnerving suspense tale that ensnares a missing girl, a mad artist, and an unreliable witness, culminating in a double-whammy of a surprise!

After witnessing the possible kidnapping of a neighborhood girl, quiet transcriptionist Willa Neville reports the crime. Unfortunately, she sports a reputation as a nosy tale-teller who exists in her own distorted world, but as her recollections and revelations become vital catalysts in the investigation, Detective Jeremy Upton must learn to trust her.

When Willa experiences heightened tensions with mean-spirited neighbors, she turns to Jeremy for support. But the more he learns about the kidnapper’s warped intentions, the greater his urgency to dismiss Willa’s claims and save the girl now… before she becomes someone or something unrecognizable. Soon, dire crimes of the past make an unwelcome appearance, and these two disparate forces—logical detective and irrational spinster—must work together to rescue the victim.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The plot twists and turns its way along with great agility. The writer manages to reveal the identity of the villain well before the end of the book, without losing the suspense, and include not one but two climactic scenes, both well done. She even provides an extra, bonus villain! I truly enjoyed reading this book.


This was a fabulous read! I love thrillers and this one did not disappoint! There are many twists and turns and I did not see them coming–even up until the very end! I have loved all of her previous books, but this one kept me awake at night reading.


This is a great read. Well-written and cohesive storyline. The characters are so well developed and right from the start you are interested in them. I really enjoyed this book and am now a devoted fan.


Thoroughly enjoyed reading Vicarious….plenty of surprises, twists and turns….Kudos, Anne!!!


I loved everything about it! Well written, strange. It was nice to read an exciting book that didn’t make me feel like I was reading almost the same books as I have read many times before, definitely relieved my recent book boredom.
