She wrote the book on escaping a predator… Now one is coming for her.

Faith Finley has it all: she’s a talented psychologist with a flourishing career, a bestselling author and the host of a popular local radio program, Someone’s Listening, with Dr. Faith Finley. She’s married to the perfect man, Liam Finley, a respected food critic.

Until the night everything goes horribly wrong, and Faith’s life is shattered forever.

Liam is missing—gone without a trace—and the police are suspicious of everything Faith says. They either think she has something to hide, or that she’s lost her mind.

And then the notes begin to arrive. Notes that are ripped from Faith’s own book, the one that helps victims leave their abusers. Notes like “Lock your windows. Consider investing in a steel door.”

As the threats escalate, the mystery behind Liam’s disappearance intensifies. And Faith’s very life will depend on finding answers


Someone’s Listening by Seraphina Nova Glass is a suspenseful domestic mystery.

Psychologist Faith Finley’s life imploded months earlier with a shocking accusation and the unexplained disappearance of her husband, Liam. Unable to move past her grief, Faith relies on alcohol and pills to cushion her from her pain. Ready for a change, she makes a snap decision to move from their house in the suburbs to their apartment in downtown Chicago.  After making a shocking discovery, Faith hopes the police will take her assertions that Liam did not abandon her more seriously.  And when sinister notes begin appearing in her mailbox and at her apartment, Faith takes matters into her own hands to try to unearth the truth about who is stalking her and what happened to Liam.

Faith and Liam are happily married and she is stunned by the realization that her beloved husband does not instantly discount the accusation leveled against her.  But Faith gives him the space he needs in hopes that he will realize she is telling the truth. By the night of her anticipated book release, their marriage is in a much better place.   Which is why Faith is so convinced that Liam did not leave her following the accident on their way home from the book release party.

Uncertain whom to trust after returning to Chicago, Faith tries to avoid new neighbor Hilly Lancaster. She has an unexpected tie to Liam but Faith cannot decide whether the woman is just eccentric and harmless or hiding a devious mind.  Faith is grateful for neighbor Marty Nash who provides her unexpected assistance as she tries to find out more information about her husband’s life. And although a little uncomfortable, Faith turns to old friend Will Holloway for legal advice as she continues to be a suspect in Liam’s case.

Detective John Sterling is suspicious of Faith’s account about what happened but they do go through the motions of investigating the accident. When evidence points toward Liam leaving of his own accord, the case is soon closed. But an astonishing finding changes the course of the investigation.  Faith remains under suspicion but will the increasingly menacing threats she is receiving change Sterling’s mind?

Someone’s Listening is a perplexing mystery with an intriguing storyline. Faith’s history is interesting but considering her profession, she does not always make the wisest choices.  A bit slow moving at first, the pace picks up steam and Seraphina Nova Glass brings this clever mystery to a twist-filled conclusion.
