A tender and haunting thriller from the highly acclaimed author of Ten Mile River and Stay With Me.
When Nicole Castro, the most popular girl at her high school, has her face splashed with acid, her classmate, loner and brilliant hacker, Jay Nazarro, does more than just gawk at her. He decides to find out who did it.
The deeper he digs, though, the more he falls for Nicole…and the more danger he’s in. Everyone is a suspect—even Nicole herself—and whoever did it seems ready to strike again.
Burning Blue is a high-stakes, soulful mystery that explores just how far love, or the other side of love, will take us.
