A novel by

 
 
A twisting, thrilling suspense novel about a woman with dissociative identity disorder borne of unspeakable childhood trauma who must face her abuser’s release from prison

All of Us is a riveting thriller with six compelling protagonists—who all share one body. Though legally she is Carolyn Grand, in practice she is Martha, a homemaker who cooks and cleans for her “family,” Victoria, a put-together people person, Serena, a free spirit, Kirk, a heterosexual man, Eleni, a promiscuous risk-taker, and Tina, a manifestation of what is left of Carolyn after years of childhood sexual abuse.

As they jockey for control of their body, all the personalities also work together to avoid being committed to a psychiatric facility. But Carolyn’s tenuous normal is shattered when Hank Grand, the man who abused her and leased her out to pedophiles, is released from prison. Soon he begins stalking her, bringing back painful memories for all of the personalities.

When Hank is murdered in a seedy hotel room, Carolyn is immediately a prime suspect. But the man has other shady dealings, and the burden of proof weighs heavy on the police—especially when, propelled by demons of his own, one of the detectives assigned to the case finds his way into Carolyn’s very solitary life.

The police and the reader are left wondering: are any of Carolyn’s personalities capable of murder? A deeply suspenseful novel, with a truly unique cast of characters.

*Optioned by Sony for a six-part limited series.*

Praise for this book

"A.F. Carter has delivered one gut-punch of a thriller. This one has it all--multiple personalities, none of whom get along but need to figure a way to work together; a stalking pyscho; a murder; a detective with serious issues of his own--all pieced together in a plot that never lets up. The dialogue is butcher blade sharp; the characters fully developed, all working at an unrelenting pace. This is one of those rare thrillers that stays with a reader long after the final page is turned. It's that good. So, sit back and let A. F. Carter take you for a thrill ride you won't easily forget." - Lorenzo Carcaterra

"Who done it? A tough question to answer when several protagonists live inside one body. In All of Us, A.F. Carter spins a riveting, must read tale of suspense, murder, and retribution." - Reed Farrel Coleman

"A.F. Carter's All of Us is a compellingly written account of several fiercely warring personalities...all of them in the same body. Taut. Unusual. Wholly absorbing. The most intriguing and deftly imagined mystery I have read in years." - Thomas H Cook
