In this standalone fantasy novel by an award-winning author, the dark truth behind a string of unusual murders leads to an otherworldly exploration of demigods, myth, and memory, steeped in Caribbean storytelling.

The serial killer that terrorised the City is finally behind bars, but Miranda, the forensic psychiatrist assigned to the case, still has work to do. Snatched from the brink of death by chance, she meets the otherworldly brothers Ajit and Yao, and the three begin an unusual investigation into seven unusual murders. Winding paths and unravelling clues lead them to ever more difficult questions. What is living, what is dying, what does it mean to be immortal? And who is the man who would kill to live forever?

Praise for Unraveling

“This dive into the internecine struggles of the undying and the complexities of their interaction with humanity are a welcome expansion on the world and characters of Lord’s first novel.” —Marie Brennan, New York Journal of Books

“Lord’s brisk, straightforward prose style works especially well to tell a tale of angels and other immortals accustomed to the kinky chronologies lying outside time.” —Nisi Shawl, Seattle Review of Books

A fantastical stand-alone murder mystery with a time travelling element, the latest—and highly anticipated—novel from award-winning author Karen Lord is an intricate maze-like narrative that mirrors the mazes of memory and time that exist in the novel.” —The Book Smugglers

Unraveling blends murder mystery, Caribbean mythology, and archetypal journeys for what may just be the most original crime novel of the year.” —Lit Hub

“Drawing on mystery, fantasy, myth, and family drama, Unraveling finally pays off in satisfying, surprisingly humane, and moving ways.” —Locus Magazine

Unraveling defies category; it’s a winsome and engaging mix of mystery and fantasy, horror and folklore.” —Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

Unraveling is a unique experience that will make you think and feel. You can't ask for more than that.” —The Guardians of Geek
