HUNTING ANNABELLE

Sean Suh is done with killing. After serving three years in a psychiatric prison, he’s determined to stay away from temptation. But he can’t resist Annabelle—beautiful, confident, incandescent Annabelle—who alone can see past the monster to the man inside. The man he’s desperately trying to be.

Then Annabelle disappears.

Sean is sure she’s been kidnapped—he witnessed her being taken firsthand—but the police are convinced that Sean himself is at the center of this crime. And he must admit, his illness has caused him to “lose time” before. What if there’s more to what happened than he’s able to remember?

Though haunted by the fear that it might be better for Annabelle if he never finds her, Sean can’t bring himself to let go of her without a fight. To save her, he’ll have to do more than confront his own demons… He’ll have to let them loose.

A chilling, deeply suspenseful page-turner set in the 1980s, Hunting Annabelle is a stunning debut that will leave you breathless to the very end.

Praise for HUNTING ANNABELLE

“Dynamic, compelling, and totally twisted, Hunting Annabelle blew me away. I’m still reeling. What a mind Wendy Heard has. What a debut!” –New York Times Bestselling Author J.T. Ellison

“With a protagonist you’ll almost hate to love, and more twists than a foot-long corkscrew, Hunting Annabelle is a compulsive, deliciously addictive psychological thriller that pulls you in from the first page, and doesn’t let go until you’ve reached the shocking end. A must read!” – Hannah Mary McKinnon, author of The Neighbors

“Is Hunting Annabelle an unconventional romance, a creepy psychodrama, or a detective story about a good kid stuck in a bad situation? I devoured this thrilling debut in one sitting to find out, and it took me on a wild, twisty ride until the very last page.” –Amy Gentry, author of Good as Gone

“Wendy Heard’s Hunting Annabelle is the best kind of psychological thriller—dark and twisted with a generous side of creepy. I had no idea where this story was going, only that I was rooting for Sean, the tortured hero whose search for Annabelle means releasing his own inner demons. Gritty, intense, and 100% surprising, Hunting Annabelle is one hell of a wild ride.” –Kimberley Belle, bestselling author of Three Days Missing and The Marriage Lie

When a woman crosses his path and then goes missing, anything seems possible. But what really happened to Annabelle? Pages fly right up to a final, heart-stopping turn. Wendy Heard proves herself a writer to watch!” –Wendy Walker, bestselling author of All is Not Forgotten and Emma in the Night

Book 2 is in progress! Here's what I can share:

  • It's not a sequel

  • It's a heartwarming, poetic novel about the triumph of the human spirit. Just kidding. OF COURSE IT'S ABOUT MURDER. I'll share more about it as I am able...

  • The setting is urban Los Angeles--my hometown! God it feels good to be back home. And it takes place now, so no more researching technology from the 80s. Hallelujah! 

  • This protagonist is my new favorite. She's scrappy, a hopeless smartass, and is covered in tattoos. More importantly, she's kind, strong, and warm.

  • It has a rad playlist. 

  • Fears this book might reinforce: crowds, strangers, random acts of murderous vengeance, needles, and did I mention strangers?
