Nocturne In Ashes by Joslyn Chase

Now she’s playing for her life!

With the death of her husband and son, concert pianist Riley Forte’s life and career shattered. Her comeback performance bombs, her sponsor pulls out, and she faces the tattered ruins of a once-happy life.

When Mt. Rainier erupts, isolating her in a small community stalked by a serial killer, it seems like the end of everything, but it brings a new chance for Riley.

If she can evade the clutches of a dedicated killer.

In a riveting action story filled with breathtaking suspense, Riley fights to hang on to the one thing she has left—her life, and the one thing she needs to turn it around—redemption.

Fans of Jeffery Deaver, Lisa Gardner, and Peter Robinson will be captivated by this page-turner. If you like a gripping, suspenseful tale, grab your copy of Nocturne in Ashes and prepare to burn the midnight oil.

What makes the Riley Forte books so special?

Without a doubt, it’s Riley Forte. She’s a special sort of protagonist—wounded and flawed, yet gifted with a full mixture of talent, intelligence, unique abilities, and the human desire to connect, to make a difference, to matter to someone.

My hope for the series is to give Riley opportunities to make a difference as she passes through puzzles and challenges. I also want to create a lot of suspense and thrills for my readers. In short, I want to provide a series of satisfying reading experiences full of mystery, suspense, and action with a hint of romance.

Overall, the Riley Forte series is designed to keep you turning the pages – and I’m working to make sure there’s never a dull moment.
