A Novel of Suspense
“Part mystery, part thriller, part social commentary, and all impossible to put down.”—Kirkus Reviews
What happens when a killer who can’t be caught threatens to kill your children next?
A town and a mother are forced to confront their worst fears in this hair-raising suspense novel from the author of Roots of Murder.
Newly widowed mother Nell McGraw struggles with her outsider status as she runs the newspaper founded by her husband’s grandfather. But a paper can’t turn away from the stories that others ignore, like the body of a child found in the Gulf. At first it seems tragic, a child lost because of carelessness.
Then another child goes missing.
Disgusted by the turf war between the sheriff and the police chief, Nell barely manages to keep her journalistic distance . . . until the killer contacts her, telling her that her children could be next. Now Nell must match wits with a psychopath who taunts her, daring her and the police to catch him before he can kill again.
