An Almost Perfect Thing (print)

Greg is a once-respected journalist searching for a high-profile story that will help revive his career. Chloe is the missing girl he wrote about six years earlier who has just returned home to a world she no longer recognizes. Instead of leading police to her captor, Chloe turns to Greg to share her story. Unfortunately for him, Chloe won’t provide names or locations, and instead dictates exactly how the story should be told. But Chloe has become an international celebrity—both respected and scrutinized by the public—and they all want to know, who is her kidnapper? Why is she protecting him? When Greg begins to question whether truth and fiction have collided, he takes matters into his own hands, in spite of the drastic consequences. Even if that means coming face to face with Chloe’s abductor. An Almost Perfect Thing is a multi-perspective thriller about possession and desire, the need to own our stories, and our “right” to the truth.

“Moeller is a big talent: theatrically smart, surprising in her insights, and elliptical in her writing.” —Liz Nicholls, Edmonton Journal

“… [a] dark and haunting new work.” —Paul Blinov, Vue Weekly
