The Gordian Knot Undone

A novel by

Everyone thinks Jess Stranahan has her life under control. Her husband is in awe of her skills as a wife and mother. Her fellow teachers joke about her compulsion to dot every i and cross every t. No one realizes the energy she expends in her quest for perfection after enduring a chaotic childhood. Her carefully controlled existence begins to unravel when she receives a most unwelcome phone call. Her mother, imprisoned for twenty years on a murder conviction, has been released and needs a place to live. Jess watches in increasing dismay as Mama charms the entire family. Mama knows how to get what she wants, and more importantly, how to get others to give her what she wants.
Jess finds herself overcome by nightmares and flashbacks to her childhood. An unexplained death and a poisoning attempt finally persuade her that she must take drastic action to sever the knot that malevolently binds three generations.
The Gordian Knot Undone is a novel of psychological suspense that explores the sociopathic personality and how it can influence a family. The twists and turns keep the reader guessing as to who is the villain and who is the victim until the last sentence.
