I’m calling it. The next Netflix/Amazon show should be called The Remainders and be based on this book!

The remainders are the people left behind after a serial killer murders your wife or mother. But imagine it’s a female serial killer. Now imagine you’re that serial killer’s daughter?

Kate Moretti is a dark twisted genius when it comes to suspense and psychological stories. Edie and Dylan Beckett are the children of serial killer Lilith who is prison. Their childhood is a series of incredible neglect and dysfunction.

Now as adults Edie tells the story of what happens when her obsessive behavior collides with another murder. So many twists and jaw-dropping scenes. Deliciously creepy and perfected prose.

“I pull my leg in, the black jean streaked with dirt, and sink down, under the window, my heart hammering so loud I can hardly hear. Complacency will kill me. Caught fugitives are brought down by a single tenet: comfort. “


Kate Moretti is the New York Times Bestselling author of four novels and a novella, including Thought I Knew You, While You Were Gone, Binds That Tie, The Vanishing Year and The Blackbird Season.

THE VANISHING YEAR was a nominee in the Goodreads Choice Awards Mystery/Thriller category for 2016 and was called “chillingly satisfying.” (Publisher’s Weekly) with “superb” closing twists (New York Times Book Review).

Kate has worked in the pharmaceutical industry for twenty years as a scientist and enjoys traveling and cooking. She lives in Pennsylvania in an old farmhouse with her husband, two children and no known ghosts! Her lifelong dream is to find a secret passageway.
