Local author Lis Angus’s first novel, a thriller titled Not Your Child, was released on April 18. The novel is published by The Wild Rose Press, and is available in both ebook and paperback formats.
The story features Susan, an Ottawa psychologist and single mother, whose twelve-year-old daughter disappears. The immediate suspect is Daniel, who has been following the girl and claims she’s actually his granddaughter who was abducted as a baby—but Daniel has an alibi, and two searches of his house turn up nothing. The hunt is on—police are on full mobilization, and Susan fears the worst.
