Publish Date August 7, 2017

One night three years ago, the Tanner sisters disappeared: fifteen-year-old Cass and seventeen-year-old Emma. Three years later, Cass returns, without her sister Emma. Her story is one of kidnapping and betrayal, of a mysterious island where the two were held. But to forensic psychiatrist Dr. Abby Winter, something doesn’t add up. Looking deep within this dysfunctional family Dr. Winter uncovers a life where boundaries were violated and a narcissistic parent held sway. And where one sister’s return might just be the beginning of the crime.

Emma In The Night by Wendy Walker Book Review

Three years ago Emma and her younger sister, Cassandra (Cass) disappeared from their upscale coastal town. Three years later Cass returns to her Mother and Stepfathers front door.  But where is Emma? As Cass begins to fill in the gaps of the last three years to her family and FBI agents, Abigal Winter and Leo Strauss, Dr. Winter begins to wonder if everything is as it seems? Is Cass telling them what really happened to her and Emma?

Walker’s second novel takes us deep into the dynamics of a dysfunctional family and the results of those dysfunctions are Emma and Cass.
