A Killer's Patience
Twenty years ago, a fire ravaged the Dillinger family's old homestead, killing Judd Dillinger and crippling his girlfriend. Most people blamed a serial arsonist who'd been seen around town. But strange things are happening in Prairie Creek, Wyoming, again.
Will Be Rewarded
Ira Dillinger, the family's wealthy patriarch, has summoned his children home for his upcoming wedding. Eldest son, Colton, and his siblings don't approve of their father's gold-digging bride-to-be. But someone is making his displeasure felt in terrifying ways, setting fires just like in the past. Only this time, there will be no survivors.
As fear and distrust spread through Prairie Creek, soon all the Dillingers, and those closest to them, are targets — and suspects. A killer has been honing his skill, feeding his fury, and waiting for the moment when the Dillingers come home — to die. . .

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Nancy Bush has had an eclectic writing career. She began her career in the romance genre, writing both contemporary and historical novels, but being a mystery buff, she kept trying to add suspense into the plot, as much as her editors would allow. In 2002 she was chosen by ABC Television to be part of a writing group "think tank" which was tasked with developing story for ABC's daytime dramas. She was one of two people selected from that group to actually become a breakdown writer for, at the time, one of ABC's top-rated daytime shows: All My Children.
Nancy wrote three Jane Kelly Mystery novels in the space of three years, and has another one currently in proposal form. During the last several years, she's turned her attention to romantic suspense novels, writing Hush and co-writing Wicked Game and Wicked Lies with her sister, the bestselling author Lisa Jackson.
Nancy Bush lives in Oregon with her family.
Rosalind Noonan grew up in suburban Maryland and enjoyed being part of a large family. "With my four siblings, Saturday mornings were a blast," she says. "There was festival seating on the living room floor where we tuned into cartoons and passed the Sugar Pops."
She graduated from Wagner College in Staten Island and continued to live in New York City for twenty-five years. She currently lives in the Pacific Northwest, where she writes under the shade of two-hundred-year-old Douglas firs.
