Alex Finlay’s EVERY LAST FEAR is one of the most anticipated and acclaimed thrillers of 2021. Published by Minotaur in March, it was named a Best Book of the Month, Mystery and Thriller category, by Amazon; it was chosen as an Indie Next pick by independent booksellers across the country; it was selected as a Library Reads pick by librarians nationwide; and Kobo named it a Best Audiobook of the Month. Newsweek declares it “gripping from the first bone-chilling line to the final page,” and Parade raves: “It’s twisty and unputdownable and intensifies until the very end.”  It has been named to over two dozen “Most Anticipated” and “Best of” lists, including on Goodreads, Buzzfeed, Readers Digest, Newsweek, CNN underscored, E! Online, BookBub, PopSugar, and Bibliofile. Bestselling authors call it “A standout novel plotted with surgical precision” (Karin Slaughter), “Explosive!” (Lisa Gardner), “Brilliant…as mesmerizing as it is heartbreaking” (Liv Constantine), “Thoroughly compelling… A winner” (Allison Brennan), and “Hands down the best thriller I’ve read this year” (Jennifer Hillier). In this psychological thriller, a family made infamous by a true crime documentary is found dead, leaving their surviving son to uncover the truth about their final days. It has been licensed in a dozen languages.

Alex Finlay was born in the American South and spent years traversing the globe, from a tropical island in the Pacific to a small village in the UK to a remote region in the Far East, to his current home in Washington, D.C. But it was on a vacation in Tulum, Mexico that Alex was inspired to write EVERY LAST FEAR.
