 “I make brilliant Rocky Road. It’s kind of my signature thing... What this is… is the hard lump in the rocky road.  Hard as gravel.  Small but, when you least expect it, it will stick in your throat or you’ll break a tooth on it.  Every time

Shaun McKenna’s compelling and timely new thriller Rocky Road is a gripping exploration of grief, obsession and revenge.

 

Zoe had everything to live for when her life was suddenly and violently ripped apart. Seven years later, Zoe still wants answers. A chance encounter reopens old wounds and sets her on a path that will lead either to devastation or redemption. What exactly does her elusive, soft-spoken, butterfly-raising caretaker know? And how far will she go to find out?
