From the author of the “full-throttle thriller” (A. J. Finn) No Exit—a riveting new psychological page-turner featuring a fierce and unforgettable heroine.

Three months ago, Lena Nguyen’s estranged twin sister, Cambry, drove to a remote bridge seventy miles outside of Missoula, Montana, and jumped two hundred feet to her death. At least, that is the official police version.

But Lena isn’t buying it.

Now she’s come to that very bridge, driving her dead twin’s car and armed with a cassette recorder, determined to find out what really happened by interviewing the highway patrolman who allegedly discovered her sister’s body.

Corporal Raymond Raycevic has agreed to meet Lena at the scene. He is sympathetic, forthright, and professional. But his story still seems a bit off. For one thing, he stopped Cambry for speeding just an hour before she supposedly leaped to her death. Then there are the sixteen attempted 911 calls from her cell phone, made in what was unfortunately a dead zone.

But perhaps most troubling of all, the state trooper is referred to by name in Cambry’s final enigmatic text to her sister: Please Forgive Me. Lena will do anything to uncover the truth. But as her twin’s final hours come into focus, Lena’s search turns into a harrowing tooth-and-nail fight for her own survival—one that will test everything she thought she knew about her sister and herself…


Hairpin Bridge by Taylor Adams is a suspense-laden psychological thriller.

Twenty-four-year-old Lena Nguyen has not been in touch with her twin sister Cambry for several months. And yet, she knows Cambry would not have killed herself. Lena travels to Montana to meet with state trooper Corporal Raymond Raycevic to discover exactly happened at the bridge where Cambry died. Lena is hoping to find answers to the questions that have haunted her for months. But is she fully prepared for what Raycevic might tell her?

Lena and Cambry might be twins, but they are complete opposites. Lena is a rule follower who attended college and keeps to herself. Cambry has been in and out of trouble for years and her relationship with her family is tumultuous.  Cambry abruptly left town several months ago with her boyfriend and communication with Lena has been scarce. Lena has pieced together some of Cambry’s journey and fills in the rest with conjecture about her sister’s activities. Lena has spent the months since her sister’s death devising a plan for her confrontation with Raycevic. Will she finally learn the truth about the events leading up to  Cambry’s death?

Raycevic is ready to provide Lena pat answers to her questions what happened the night before he discovered Cambry’s body. Although he has researched Lena, he is surprised when she is skeptical of the explanation he gives her about his interactions with Cambry. But unbeknownst to Lena, Raycevik has secrets that he will go to any lengths to prevent from being unearthed.

Hairpin Bridge is an incredibly fast-paced and riveting psychological thriller. Lena’s need for answers is understandable but has she made a foolish mistake in confronting Raycevic? As their meeting begins to spiral out of control, will she be able to outwit Raymond? With jaw-dropping plot twists, Taylor Adams brings this edge-of-the-seat psychological thriller to an action-packed conclusion.
