Publisher Comments:

Aud (it rhymes with "shroud" ) Torvingen is six feet tall with blond hair and blue eyes. She can restore a log cabin with antique tools or put a man in a coma with her bare hands. As imagined by Nicola Griffith in this ferocious masterpiece of literary noir, Aud is a hero who combines the tortured complexity with moral authority.

In the aftermath of her lover's murder, the last thing a grieving Aud wants is another case. Against her better judgment she agrees to track down an old friend's runaway fiancée--and finds herself up against both a sociopath so artful that the law can't touch him, and the terrible specters of loss and guilt. As stylish as this year's Prada and as arresting as a razor at the throat, Stay places Nicola Griffith in the first rank of new-wave crime writers.

DG, April 12, 2007 (view all comments by DG)
Nicola Griffith's "Aud (Rhymes with Shroud)" is memorable and haunting. She has a past the beckons with its damage and its mystery, and she's the coolest 6-foot literay badass you'll ever met. Griffith lushly portrays the mountains around Asheville, North Carolina, moving deftly from rural to urban settings and their associate moods/dangers. Reading "Stay" will make you want to read the preceding novel to this book "The Blue Place" as well, because Aud has a lot going on. She's lost her lover, she's almost lost her mind. Convincingly narrated, you will want to be very deep under Aud's skin by the conclustion. I read this book in one long, single day. First rate fiction!
