"Rich characters, a forensic artist's eye for detail, and plot twists-Carrie Stuart Parks hits all the right notes!" -Mary Burton, New York Times bestselling author

An unsolved case. A tempest of memories. The future's at stake-and time is running out ...

Gwen Marcey has done a good job keeping the pain of her past boxed up. But as she investigates the case of a missing child in Lapwai, Idaho, details keep surfacing that are eerily similar to her childhood traumas. She doesn't believe in coincidences. So what's going on here?

No one knows more about the impact of the past than the Nez Perce people of Lapwai. Gwen finds herself an unwelcome visitor to some, making her investigation even more difficult. The questions keep piling up, but answers are slow in coming-and the clock is ticking for a missing little girl. Meanwhile, Gwen's ex-husband is threatening to take sole custody of their daughter.

As Gwen's past and present collide, she's in a desperate race for the truth. Because only truth will ensure she still has a future.

Great Thriller Series
5 stars By Iola, Oct 21 2017
A Portrait of Vengeance is the fourth Gwen Marcey novel, following When Death Draws Near, The Bones Will Speak, and A Cry from the Dust. Each novel centres on a crime or series of related crimes, with an underlying thread about Gwen's relationship with her teenage daughter (not good) and her ex-husband (even less good).

Portrait of Vengeance was unique in that it gave some of Gwen's own personal history. This gave an insight into the person she has become, and showed us what she has overcome-not just the breast cancer and divorce we learned about in the earlier novels, but something of her childhood and upbringing.

As Gwen investigates the disappearance of a native American child from a small town in Idaho, she finds details which are similar to her own childhood memories. Is the person behind this disappearance the same person who destroyed her childhood? And what happens when the memories don't make sense.

I don't want to say too much, because it's impossible without giving away spoilers. If you've read the previous Gwen Marcey novels, you'll want to read this-it's the best yet in terms of both the characters and the suspense. Recommended for those who enjoy fast-paced thrillers with great characters. Thanks to Thomas Nelson and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
