Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Portland detective Archie Sheridan, the former head of the Beauty Killer Task Force, hunted Gretchen Lowell for years before she kidnapped him, tortured him, and then let him go. Now that she is behind bars, Archie is finally piecing his life back together. He has returned home to his ex-wife and their two children and sworn off visiting Gretchen. Though it should feel like progress, being away from Gretchen makes him feel worse.

When the body of a young woman is discovered in Forest Park, Archie is reminded of the last time they found a body there, more than a decade ago: it turned out to be Gretchen's first victim, and Archie's first case. The body can't be one of hers. She's in prison.
Then the unthinkable happens: Gretchen escapes and, while the city is on edge, Archie is secretly relieved. He knows he's the only one who can capture her, and once he does he now has a twisted plan to get out from under her thumb for good.
Each new novel in Chelsea Cain's scorching bestselling series--"Heartsick, Sweetheart, Evil at Heart," and a new novel coming in 2011--is a dark, thrilling, and unparalleled tour de force.

About the author

Biography of Cain, Chelsea

Writer Chelsea Cain was born in Iowa City, Iowa on February 5, 1972 and lived on a commune in Iowa and then in Bellingham, Washington. She studied political science at the University of California at Irvine, graduating in 1994. She also attended the University of Iowa's graduate school of journalism and has written for several newspapers, including The Oregonian. While at Iowa, she wrote a weekly column for The Daily Iowan.

Her masters thesis at the University of Iowa became Dharma Girl, a memoir about Cain's early childhood on the hippie commune. One of her professors presented it to several editors for review, and Seal Press picked it up as Cain's first published work. She was 24 years old. Cain publishes in several genres and has penned a memoir, works of humor, and thrillers. After working as a Creative Director at a PR firm in Portland for several years, Cain began writing humor books in her spare time, including The Hippie Handbook: How to Tie-Dye a T-Shirt, Flash a Peace Sign, and Other Essential Skills for the Carefree Life Confessions of a Teen Sleuth, and Does this Cape Make Me Look Fat? Pop-Psychology for Superheroes, which Cain co-wrote with her husband.

Cain also composed a weekly column for Portlands alternative newspaper, The Portland Mercury, and started contributing to Portlands major daily, The Oregonian in 2003when she left marketing behind to focus on writing full-time. Her last column with The Oregonian was posted on December 28, 2008. She wrote her first thriller Heartsick in 2004, while pregnant with her daughter. It was published on September 4, 2007, and was an instant New York Times Bestseller. Sweetheart and Evil at Heart, the second and third in the series, respectively, are also New York Times bestsellers.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2008-05-01)

Cain, in the follow-up to her best-selling Heartsick, takes Det. Archie Sheridan on another ride when serial killer Gretchen Lowell escapes from prison. The author lives in Portland, OR. Library marketing campaign.

Review by Library Journal (2008-12-01)

Has any police officer, actual or fictional, been more obsessed and manipulated by a serial killer than Portland detective Archie Sheridan? Cain's second trilogy entry (following the New York Times and Boston Globe best seller Heartsick) takes Archie, his partner, and a reporter on another wild ride in pursuit of Beauty Killer Gretchen Lowell. The calm of Law and Order actress Carolyn McCormick (7th Heaven) prevails in this reading, though the musical cues for chapter and CD breaks are occasionally uneven. Gripping and intense despite some predictability; recommended.

Book description

Portland detective Archie Sheridan, the former head of the Beauty Killer Task Force, hunted Gretchen Lowell for years before she kidnapped him, tortured him, and then let him go. Now that she is behind bars, Archie is finally piecing his life back together. He has returned home to his ex-wife and their two children and sworn off visiting Gretchen. Though it should feel like progress, being away from Gretchen makes him feel worse.

When the body of a young woman is discovered in Forest Park, Archie is reminded of the last time they found a body there, more than a decade ago: it turned out to be Gretchen’s first victim, and Archie’s first case. The body can’t be one of hers. She’s in prison.

Then the unthinkable happens: Gretchen escapes and, while the city is on edge, Archie is secretly relieved. He knows he’s the only one who can capture her, and once he does he now has a twisted plan to get out from under her thumb for good.

Each new novel in Chelsea Cain’s scorching bestselling series— Heartsick, Sweetheart, Evil at Heart, and a new novel coming in 2011—is a dark, thrilling, and unparalleled tour de force.
