If you are a fan of Jodi Picoult or Susan Lewis, this is equal parts family drama, love story and thriller. Diane Chamberlain is the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Silent Sister and The Midwife's Confession. Susanna Miller loses custody of her eleven-month-old son, Tyler, but rather than turning the little boy over to her ex-husband and his new wife, she goes on the run. She dyes her hair, changes her name and escapes from Boulder, Colorado, leaving behind everyone she knows including Linc Sebastian, the man who has been her best friend since childhood and who knows her better than anyone. Susanna lands in Annapolis, Maryland, alone, frightened, and always looking over her shoulder for someone who might recognize her. Just as she's beginning to feel safe in her new surroundings, she stumbles across information that could save the lives of many people . . . if she's willing to take it to the police. But going to the authorities means revealing her identity, admitting her guilt and, worst of all, losing her son.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Meltzer is a master and this is his best. Not since The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo have you seen a character like this. Get ready to meet Nola. If you've never tried Meltzer, this is the one."--Harlan Coben WHO IS NOLA BROWN? Nola is a mystery Nola is trouble. And Nola is supposed to be dead. Her body was found on a plane that mysteriously fell from the sky as it left a secret military base in the Alaskan wilderness. Her commanding officer verifies she's dead. The US government confirms it. But Jim "Zig" Zigarowski has just found out the truth: Nola is still alive. And on the run. Zig works at Dover Air Force Base, helping put to rest the bodies of those who die on top-secret missions. Nola was a childhood friend of Zig's daughter and someone who once saved his daughter's life. So when Zig realizes Nola is still alive, he's determined to find her. Yet as Zig digs into Nola's past, he learns that trouble follows Nola everywhere she goes. Nola is the U.S. Army's artist-in-residence-a painter and trained soldier who rushes into battle, making art from war's aftermath and sharing observations about today's wars that would otherwise go overlooked. On her last mission, Nola saw something nobody was supposed to see, earning her an enemy unlike any other, one who will do whatever it takes to keep Nola quiet. Together, Nola and Zig will either reveal a sleight of hand being played at the highest levels of power or die trying to uncover the US Army's most mysterious secret-a centuries-old conspiracy that traces back through history to the greatest escape artist of all: Harry Houdini.

"So this, more or less, was how things stood for me at the end of 1981. I was twenty-nine years old and I was still on the lowest rung of the civil service pay scale and I lived alone in a three-bedroom government flat with twenty-four different sized statues of the Sacred Heart of Jesus...." Spanning over ten years and moving between locations as different as Cambridge, Venice and Gibraltar, THE ESCAPE ARTIST is a novel about loneliness and broken friendship and what it means to be Gibraltarian in a rapidly changing world. "Fascinating and highly readable. Sanchez is a new voice from the old world of Britain and its fading Empire." John A. Stotesbury, Professor in Postcolonial Literatures, Helsinki, Finland "M. G. Sanchez writes with feeling and heart." Emigdi Subirats i Sebastia, Catalonian novelist, poet, biographer and translator "Through a deft and innovative style M.G. Sanchez brings to the fore a strong sense of Gibraltarian identity." Dr Esterino Adami, Department of Humanities, University of Turin"
