A young woman becomes embroiled in a web of lies and deceit—with potentially deadly consequences—in this dark coming-of-age noir, a "Patricia Highsmith-like tale of grifts and con artists" (Crime Time) from the New York Times bestselling author of Mexican Gothic and Velvet Was the Night

"Untamed Shore is a fever dream of a thriller, a coming-of-age tale set amidst disturbing and dangerous circumstances."—Book Page


Baja California, 1979: Viridiana spends her days under the harsh sun, watching the fishermen pulling in their nets and the dead sharks piled beside the seashore. Her head is filled with dreams of romance, travel and of a future beyond this drab town where her only option is to marry and have children.

When a wealthy American writer arrives with his wife and brother-in-law, Viridiana jumps at the offer of a job as his assistant, and she's soon entangled in the glamorous foreigners' lives. They offer excitement, and perhaps an escape from her humdrum life. When one of them dies, eager to protect her new friends, Viridiana lies—but soon enough, someone's asking questions. It's not long before Viridiana has some of her own questions about the identities of her new acquaintances.
