Two generations of sisters. An unthinkable crime. A secret that could ruin a family.
For a decade and a half, Rachel Cunningham has chosen to lock herself away in a psychiatric facility, tortured by gaps in her memory and the certainty that she is responsible for her parents’ deaths. But when she learns new details about their murders, Rachel returns to the place where she once felt safest in a quest for answers: her family’s sprawling log cabin in the remote forests of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
As Rachel begins to uncover what really happened on the day her parents were murdered, she learns that home can be a place of unspeakable evil, and that the bond she shares with her sister might be the most poisonous of all.

“A gut-clenching wilderness thriller.” –Minneapolis Star Tribune
“Horror movie meets mystery in Dionne’s second psychological thriller…[THE WICKED SISTER] is strong on the psychology of guilt and great at creating the spooky, haunted-house landscape.” –Booklist
“The Wicked Sister is massively thrilling and altogether unputdownable. Dionne is proving to be one of the finest suspense writers working today.” –Karin Slaughter, author of 20 International Bestselling Books
“In Karen Dionne’s wilderness, humans are the most dangerous animals of all. THE WICKED SISTER is enthralling and terrifying, and I couldn’t put it down. A terrific novel.” —Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of HOUSE ON FIRE
“Karen Dionne is back with a dark, atmospheric and chilling tale set in the deep woods of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Beautifully written, THE WICKED SISTER moves seamlessly between past and present, unraveling the truth behind a family tragedy. From her insightful depiction of both the grace and bitter cruelty of humanity, to her command of the plot and pacing, Dionne’s brilliance shines through on every single page. Prepare to be blown away!” —Wendy Walker, international bestselling author of THE NIGHT BEFORE

“Fresh, truly original, and utterly unpredictable, Karen Dionne is at the top of her game with the gorgeously told THE WICKED SISTER. I devoured this book in one sitting! It’s hard to balance complex and heartrending familial relationships with pulse-pounding suspense, but somehow this book does exactly that. The icing on the cake is a cat and mouse chase in an eerie and beautiful mountain lodge. Propulsive and terrifying to the very shocking end!” —Kate Moretti, New York Times bestselling author of THE VANISHING YEAR and IN HER BONES
