Publisher's Summary

From the award-winning author of Little Pretty Things comes this gripping, unforgettable tale of a mother's desperate search for a lost boy.

Anna Winger can know people better than they know themselves with only a glance - at their handwriting. Hired out by companies wanting to land trustworthy employees and by the lovelorn hoping to find happiness, Anna likes to keep the real-life messes of other people at arm's length and on paper. But when she is called to use her expertise on a note left behind at a murder scene in the small town she and her son have recently moved to, the crime gets under Anna's skin and rips open her narrow life for all to see. To save her son - and herself - once and for all, Anna will face her every fear, her every mistake, and the past she thought she'd rewritten.

What the Critics Say

"[Narrator Hillary] Huber captures the personalities of the diverse characters, who are full of grit and determination, especially the women.... Huber's smoky voice is perfect for this carefully unfolding psychological thriller." (AudioFile)

    "Best Rader Day Novel Yet!"

    I was hooked from the first page. Lori Rader Day has a way of keeping you engaged and not able to guess the ending. I guessed bits but didn't see most of it. That says a lot because I can almost always guess an ending.

    The way Rader Day describes the protagonist's surroundings is so easy and fluid. I usually skip through the setting/scenery parts of a book because they are so monotonous. Not so with Ms. Rader Day. Her scene setting is so natural that I enjoy learning more.

    Lori's books are relatively clean. Enough sex and language to keep it real and interesting but not so much that I couldn't read the book aloud to my mom. I feel comfortable letting my teenager read her books.

    My biggest problem with this book is that it ended and I have to wait another year for Lori Rader Day's next novel.

    "Amazing Book"
    Where does The Day I Died rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the only novel I have listened to on Audible, but I have read (a physical copy) a few books like this (mystery horror genre with a female lead), and it ranks very well among them. It is beautifully written, insightful, nuanced, and critically and politically insightful while still be narrative, plot, and character driven. Excellent book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was interesting but not overly dramatic; it was believable, real, but always captivating.


    What about Hillary Huber’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narrator. Best Narrative I have heard thus far. She completely captures the character and brings the story to life. Amazing.
