Black-Eyed Susans

Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Black Eye Susans by Julia Heaberlin, read by Sarah Borges, Christopher Ragland, Patricia Rodriguez and Julie Rogers.

Seventeen-year-old Tessa, dubbed a 'Black-Eyed Susan' by the media, became famous for being the only victim to survive the vicious attack of a serial killer. Her testimony helped to put a dangerous criminal behind bars - or so she thought.

Now, decades later the black-eyed susans planted outside Tessa's bedroom window seem to be a message from a killer who should be safely in prison.

Haunted by fragmented memories of the night she was attacked and terrified for her own teenage daughter's safety, can Tessa uncover the truth about the killer before it's too late?
