Karen Ellis: A Map of the Dark


A Map Of The Dark Karen Ellis

Wounded

Damaged

 

As a child, FBI agent Elsa Myers was abused by her mother. To deal with this she became a cutter, her skin a map work of her pain. Now years later her father is dying, and she is confused and conflicted. Why did he not save her from her mother?

No surprise then, that her career trajectory has her on a rapid response team for child abduction. Her insight is keen, her results are real. 

A request for help from NYPD detective Lex Cole, leads to more than she thought possible, as layer upon layer of her past becomes both obstacle and advantage.

Karen Ellis is the pseudonym of author Katia Lief who has several books to her credit. A Map of the Dark is the first book in The Searchers series.
