"Rick Mofina has penned a creepy, heart-pounding page-turner…. A gripping, chilling thriller from beginning to end."

—Heather Gudenkauf, New York Times bestselling author of The Overnight Guest

Every mother worries about their child. But Sara Harmon fears hers…

When a teen falls while taking a selfie at the edge of a cliff, the last thing she sees before plummeting to her death is Katie Harmon, the nine-year-old girl she was babysitting, looking down at her.

Investigators gather at the scene, and Katie’s mother, Sara, rushes to comfort her daughter. Yet there’s a small, secret ping of alarm in Sara’s heart that she cannot share—though rookie detective Kim Pierce senses it.

For years, others have tried to unravel this secret. From true-crime podcasters to a haunted journalist searching for a killer who vanished after being released from prison several years ago. And now, with detectives tightening the focus of their investigation, Sara is consumed by her darkest fear—that the babysitter’s death was not an accident.

In Everything She Feared, Rick Mofina has penned a creepy, heart-pounding page-turner. Simmering with unrelenting tension and family secrets, Mofina mines the darkest corners of the human heart and explores the age-old question—is evil born or made? A gripping, chilling thriller from beginning to end.

"Everything She Feared hooked me from page one and didn't let go. An intriguing premise coupled with masterful storytelling and a well-plotted mystery made it impossible for me to put it down. Compulsively readable with twists and turns right up until the stunning conclusion. I loved it."

—Amber Garza, author of A Mother Would Know

"Everything She Feared is a propulsive, page-turning thriller; I couldn't put it down. I was immediately immersed in the different perspectives, all realistic and fascinating characters whom I couldn't help but root for. Mofina has successfully written The Bad Seed for the twenty-first century, with even more twists and turns."

—Flora Collins, author of A Small Affair
