Then comes the news that will shatter Amanda's untouchable world: her mother, who has always held a strange power over everyone she encounters, has shot and killed a complete stranger. Forced to return to Toronto, Amanda must confront her demons and unravel the truth behind her mother's violent act -- while the taunting, teasing name from her past dances in her head . . . Puppet . . . telling her that someone else is orchestrating her fate.Mad River RoadAfter spending a year in prison, Ralph Fisher has explicit plans for his first night of freedom: tonight, someone will be held accountable.
