"Milchman follows up her critically acclaimed thriller Cover Of Snow with
the story of a woman uncovering her husband’s dark past in order to
find where he’s taken her children. Read it now and join us at
BookPeople June 16th when Jenny is here to sign and discuss the novel."
“In Ruin Falls Milchman continues her theme of women facing the worst that life can hand them and yet finding a way to overcome these challenges. Liz is looking forward to taking a rare family vacation to see her husband Paul's parents and letting their two children get to know their grandparents. Paul has never been an easy man to live with, but Liz loves him and tries zealously to bridge the gap between Paul's rigorous beliefs and her children's happiness. When both children go missing from their hotel room in the middle of the night, Liz has no idea who might have taken them, nor does she realize the depth of her own courage that it will take to find out. A wonderful, high-octane read!”
— Linda Dewberry, Whodunit? Books, Olympia, WA
Advance praise for Ruin Falls
“[Jenny Milchman] carves out a new niche with this unusual mix of ecothriller and family suspense drama.”—Booklist (starred review)

“The storyline is tight and suspenseful. Milchman has a gift that allows her to delve deep into the mind and psyche of her characters, and fans of dark plots like the works of Gillian Flynn will find another author to savor.”—RT Book Reviews
