In Case of Emergency

(2020)
A novel by

 
 
The new thriller from E. G. Scott follows a woman looking for answers after her boyfriend goes missing and a corpse appears that implicates her in the murder of a woman she never met.

Charlotte, a midthirties Long Island woman, has felt so alone since her promising career in neuroscience imploded. But she has an online support group for trauma survivors; she has Rachel, a friend who has seen her through the worst of it; and now she also has Peter, a mysterious new boyfriend who has asked that their budding romance remain a total secret.

That is why she is too scared to report his disappearance to the authorities when he vanishes without a word.

Weeks later, police contact her to make an ID on a body and she fears the worst for her missing beau. Instead, she arrives at the morgue and feels a terrible relief when she sees a woman she has never met before on the table in front of her. But relief is replaced by confusion, then terror, when Charlotte realizes she has become a person of interest.

Why did Jane Doe have Charlotte listed as her emergency contact? Was it revenge or a warning? And where exactly does Peter factor into all this? As Charlotte becomes the prime murder suspect, she enters into a race against the clock to find truth about the dead woman and the connections they shared. But what she discovers is beyond anything she could have ever imagined.

Praise for this book

"A smart whodunit that brims with human insight about the surprising ways in which we heal and the importance of coming face-to-face with our role in the trajectory of our lives. In Case of Emergency is a fast-paced volley of a story batted back and forth between a cast of entertaining characters, all while stylishly concealing more than a few tricks up its proverbial sleeve." - Chandler Baker

"In Case of Emergency begins with a phone call and unfolds into a sharply plotted, dark story packed with lies, betrayals, and so many secrets. Fast-moving and clever!" - Samantha Downing

"With more twists and turns than a mountain road, In Case of Emergency will take you on one hell of a ride. Buckle in as E. G. Scott expertly spins a story that will have you guessing until the final pages, culminating with a blockbuster ending. A must read!" - Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke

"When a brilliant but troubled doctor is listed as the emergency contact for a woman found dead - a woman who's a complete stranger - she finds herself the prime suspect in the murder. Razor sharp narration and witty dialogue keep the pages turning in this fantastic follow-up to EG Scott's breakout sensation The Woman Inside." - Wendy Walker
