Publisher Comments:

“If you like Mary Higgins Clark, youll love Wendy Corsi Staub.”
—Lisa Jackson

“Wendy Corsi Staub is a master storyteller!”
—Brenda Novak

“Once Staubs brilliant characterizations and top-notch narrative skills grab hold, they dont let go.”
—Publishers Weekly


Superstar thriller writer Lee Child calls the novels of Wendy Corsi Staub, “Solid gold suspense,” and readers who dig into Hell to Pay will discover theyve hit the mother lode. The third book in Staubs exceptional suspense trilogy—which she began with the Mary Higgins Clark Award-nominated Live to Tell, and continued with Scared to Death, winner of the Westchester Library Associations Washington Irving Book Award—Hell to Pay revisits two married survivors of an unspeakable childhood nightmare fifteen years later, whose lives are shattered once again by dark secrets and a terrible vengeance unleashed by an unexpected Act of God. Devoted Lisa Jackson and Lisa Gardner fans who have yet to experience the thrilling suspense fiction of Wendy Corsi Staub…now is the time!

Review:

"At the outset of this violent, generic thriller from bestseller Staub, the third in a trilogy that began with Live to Tell and Scared to Death, a freak major earthquake hits Massachusetts, allowing an unnamed female convict to escape unscathed from the ruins of the Bridgebury Correctional Facility. The woman, taking inspiration from her Bible, starts a campaign of vengeance by shooting to death a wounded prison guard who once raped her. She quickly moves beyond crimes of opportunity to a careful strategic plan aimed at Lucy Walsh Cavalon, a pregnant computer network administrator hoping finally to carry a child to term. Lucy's adversary, who once 'had lived in a grand home whose marble bathrooms were stocked with fine European linens,' has it in for Lucy and her husband, Jeremy, who won a large chunk of the escaped convict's assets in a damages settlement. Staub brings nothing new to the familiar psychotic-pursuing-a-vendetta plot line." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
