A psychological thriller - perfect for anyone fascinated by compelling true-crime stories such as Wild, Wild Country and The Road to Jonestown - about a young woman who thought she’d escaped the legacy of her mass-murderer father, until her estranged mother is killed by his so-called followers - and it’s clear this death is only the beginning.
Blanche Potter never wanted to repeat the past - but she knows she can’t escape it.
In 1996, when she was a small child, her father, Chuck Varner, went on a shooting spree before turning the gun on himself. To Blanche and her mother, Crissy, Chuck was not the crazed killer the media portrayed: He was a devoted leader, a man whose beliefs could’ve affected real change in the world. For years, in fact, they worked together to honor his memory. But after Crissy reveals the truth about the notorious mass murderer - and after she decides to carry on Chuck’s violent gospel herself - Blanche finally snaps out of the cult and flees.
Now an adult, Blanche has completely distanced herself from the bloody legacy of her parents. But when she learns her mother has been murdered, she soon discovers there’s more to her death than police are willing to reveal. The detective handling the case knew her mother before she died, and so did a journalist who has been nosing around the case. Blanche begins to suspect these men - and others who may be following her every move - are new disciples in the cult her father started.
Pulse-pounding and filled with shocking twists and turns, Your Life Is Mine explores the dangers of untrustworthy leaders, family secrets, and how the past can return to haunt you in the present.
