When a tragic accident leaves nurse Amelia Winn deaf, she spirals into a depression that ultimately causes her to lose everything that matters - her job, her husband and her stepdaughter. Now, two years later and with the help of her hearing dog, she is finally getting back on her feet. But when she discovers the body of a fellow nurse in the dense bush by the river, deep in the woods near her cabin, she is plunged into a disturbing mystery that could shatter the carefully reconstructed pieces of her life all over again.

Gudenkauf is an Edgar Award nominated, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author. She lives in Iowa with her husband and children. In her free time, Gudenkauf enjoys spending time with her family, reading and running.
