Between Two Strangers: Virtual Author Event with Kate White
Monday, June 19 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Kate White returns to Avon for a virtual event to celebrate the release of Between Two Strangers!
An out-of-nowhere inheritance sends a woman in search of the truth about her benefactor and the unfinished business he left behind in Between Two Strangers (Harper Paperbacks; Trade Paperback Original; ISBN: 9780063247369; $18.99; On-sale: May 16, 2023), the latest unmissable psychological thriller from New York Times bestselling author Kate White.
Artist Skyler Moore retreated from the world after tragedy devastated her family. Finally creating again, she is prepping for her first real gallery show when a phone call changes everything—past, present, and future. As she listens skeptically, a lawyer informs her of a mysterious bequest. One problem: the deceased’s name, Christopher Whaley, draws a complete blank.
Summoned to a law firm in an exclusive New York City suburb, Skyler suspects it’s an elaborate con or a case of mistaken identity. Despite her doubts, she can’t help but fantasize about a windfall big enough to fund her dream of motherhood. Then when she hears the would-be benefactor’s nickname, a flashback surfaces. They shared a single electrifying night in a Boston hotel room almost a dozen years earlier—and never crossed paths again.
Nothing about the seemingly random gift makes sense. Skyler is under no illusions that the hours they spent together somehow add up to seven figures, the dizzying value of the trust at stake. Meanwhile, Whaley’s widow is outraged. Accusing a shaken Skyler of having an ongoing affair with her late husband, she issues menacing warnings and vows to fight for every cent.
To protect herself and the money, Skyler needs to puzzle out the dead man’s motives, and fast. Their brief encounter could hold important clues. But those memories—from a time inextricably linked with the loss that cleaved her life in two—have been locked away. Now, in the face of a legal challenge, she has no choice but to dredge up history.
The secrets surrounding Christopher Whaley’s complicated legacy are buried deep, however. And in trying to unearth them, Skyler will discover just how much someone wants them to stay hidden . . .
A pulse-pounding read, Between Two Strangers takes readers down a breathtakingly unpredictable path on the way to a shocking final reveal. A razor-sharp tale from an “impossible to outwit” (Entertainment Weekly) master of suspense, it poses larger questions about the cost of conscience—with answers no one will see coming.
