On an icy winter's day in southwest Michigan, Grace Abbott wakes up as the survivor of a car crash. But she's left with a traumatic brain injury and a terrifying reality: she can't remember anything.
Left in the care of her sister, Grace returns to the family's secluded old farmhouse to recover-- but within an hour of her return, the police arrive. Grace's boyfriend has been murdered. Without any memory, Grace has no alibi.
With suspicion weighing heavily on her and flashes of memory returning, Grace searches for clues to her past. But with every glimpse, her anxiety grows. There is something about the house, her family, her childhood...perhaps the accident isn't the only reason she can't remember. Are the dark recesses of her mind hiding something even more sinister and terrifying than she could ever imagine?
With her second novel, Diskin has provided another engrossing, can't-put-it-down mystery, packed with enough twists and turns that readers won't know what hit 'em.

PRAISE for Diskin and Broken Grace
“The tension never relents in this five-star page turner… This is a masterfully crafted story in the best traditions of classical murder mysteries… Every scene adds tension to Grace’s plight and ends at the edge of another emotional cliff, daring the reader to put the book down… If you love a fast-moving mystery that keeps you guessing, Broken Grace is highly recommended.” Windy City Reviews
“Diskin may do for the Lower Peninsula of Michigan what Daniel Woodrell did for the Missouri Ozarks. She’s that good and that talented. Broken Grace is like a mashup of Woodrell’s Winter’s Bone and the critically acclaimed Vince Gilligan crime drama 'Breaking Bad'.” The Wiseacre, Maura E. Lynch
