When Susanna Miller loses custody of her eleven-month-old son, Tyler,she goes on the run instead of turning the little boy over to her ex-husband and his new wife. She dyes her hair, changes her name and escapes from Boulder, Colorado, leaving behind everyone she knows including Linc Sebastian, the man who has been her best friend since childhood and who knows her better than anyone.
Susanna lands in Annapolis, Maryland, lonely, frightened, and always looking over her shoulder for someone who might recognize her. Just as she’s beginning to feel safe in her new surroundings, she stumbles across information that could save the lives of many people …if she’s willing to take it to the police. But going to the authorities means revealing her identity, admitting her guilt and, worst of all, losing her son.

HOW DID DIANE CHAMBERLAIN GET THE IDEA FOR THE ESCAPE ARTIST?
The story behind The Escape Artist. When Diane was in a restaurant she overheard a conversation between two women. A mutual friend of theirs was about to lose custody of her young son to her husband and his new wife. One of the women said ‘ If I were in her shoes, I’d take my son and run. This is how Diane Chamberlain had the initial idea for The Escape Artist.
Around the same time Diane bought a laptop and discovered the owner had left some files on the hard drive.
With the two separate ideas the storyline for The Escape Artist was ready for Diane, all she had to do was create the perfect characters to go with it.
