ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER 
AND EDGAR-WINNING COURTROOM THRILLER
How far will you go to protect your family? Will you keep their secrets? Ignore their lies?

At the center of her book is the Yoo family (Young; her husband, Pak; and their 17-year-old daughter, Mary), who have emigrated from Korea and landed in the rural town of Miracle Creek, Virginia.  The Yoos run a hyperbaric chamber that may cure a range of conditions from infertility to autism. But then the chamber explodes, two people die, and it’s clear the explosion wasn’t an accident.

A powerful showdown unfolds as the story moves across characters who are all maybe keeping secrets, hiding betrayals. Chapter by chapter, we shift alliances and gather evidence: Was it the careless mother of a patient? Was it the owners, hoping to cash in on a big insurance payment and send their daughter to college? Could it have been a protester, trying to prove the treatment isn’t safe?

Miracle Creek was named a “Best Book of the Year” by Time, The Washington Post, Kirkus, and The Today Show, among others.
