Plus One by Elizabeth Fama
A dying wish. A family divided. A love that defies the law.
Sol Le Coeur is a Smudge — a night dweller in an America rigidly divided between people who wake, live and work during the hours of darkness and those known as Rays, who live and work during daylight. Impulsive, passionate and brave Sol concocts a plan to kidnap her newborn niece — a Ray — in order to bring the baby to visit her dying grandfather. Sol’s violation of the day/night curfew is already a serious crime, but when her kidnap attempt goes awry, she stumbles on a government conspiracy to manipulate the Smudge population. Sol escapes the authorities with an unexpected ally: a Ray who gets in her way, a boy she might have hated if fate hadn’t forced them on the run together — a boy the world now tells her she can’t love.
Set in a vivid alternate reality and peopled with complex, deeply human characters on both sides of the day/night divide, the story is a brilliantly imagined drama of individual liberty and civil rights, and a fast-paced romantic adventure.

Casey knows the truth. But it won’t set her free.
Casey Cox’s DNA is all over the crime scene. There’s no use talking to police; they have failed her abysmally before. She has to flee before she’s arrested … or worse. The truth doesn’t matter anymore.
But what is the truth? That’s the question haunting Dylan Roberts, the war-weary veteran hired to find Casey. PTSD has marked him damaged goods, but bringing Casey back can redeem him. Though the crime scene seems to tell the whole story, details of the murder aren’t adding up. Casey Cox doesn’t fit the profile of a killer. But are Dylan’s skewed perceptions keeping him from being objective? If she isn’t guilty, why did she run?
Unraveling her past and the evidence that condemns her will take more time than Dylan has, but as his damaged soul intersects with hers, he is faced with two theories: The girl who occupies his every thought is a psychopathic killer … or a selfless hero. And the truth could be the most deadly weapon yet.
