Synopsis from Goodreads:
A death in the family, a bizarre encounter with a mysterious stranger, and a terrifying nightmare.
For 26-year old Emily Dobson, life just got very complicated. As a recent transplant to New York, Emily wants one thing most of all: to have a normal life. All the pieces are in place- a good job, her own apartment, and the chance to explore the city she loves- until a series of seemingly unrelated events threatens to shatter everything she knows about herself and the world she lives in.
Set against the backdrop of New York, City, Mercy tells the story of Emily and Mathew. After an unforgettable encounter on the street, fueled by grief and obsession, Emily roams the sidewalks of lower Manhattan, and the nocturnal world of her dreams, in search of the mysterious man with the moss-green eyes. She has stumbled onto a mystery and finds herself unable to rest until she knows the truth about him, but there are also secrets about herself that are coming to the surface.
What is real and what isn’t? For Emily, navigating between the only world she has ever known and the supernatural, where nothing is what it seems, becomes increasingly more difficult and fraught with danger.
Alberta J. McMorris is a native New Yorker, listens to jazz, watches documentary films, and never goes outdoors without sunglasses during the day.
