When the rains came they found the girl's face. Just her face. At least that was how it appeared...
From the Richard & Judy Book Club-selected author of A QUIET BELIEF IN ANGELS.

On a summer evening in 1954, 16-year-old Nancy Denton walked into the woods of her hometown of Whytesburg, Mississippi. She was never seen again.

Two decades on, Sheriff John Gaines witnesses a harrowing discovery. A body has been unearthed from the riverbank, perfectly preserved, yet bearing evidence of a brutal ritualistic killing. Nancy has come home at last.

Already haunted by his experiences in Vietnam, Gaines must now find out what really happened to the beautiful and vivacious Nancy. As he closes in on the truth, Gaines is forced to not only confront his own demons, but to unearth secrets that have long remained hidden. And that truth, so much darker than he could ever have imagined, may be the one thing that finally destroys him.

MEDIA REVIEWS

RJ Ellory sets out his stall with terrific vim and a gripping premise in his latest thriller... an energetic and winning exercise in pulp fiction with a Southern Gothic flavour. - METRO

Voodoo and murders and gothically imposing southern dynasties - what's not to like? There are moments of genuine chills, fearsomely speedy page-turning and real humour... an enjoyable summer read. - OBSERVER

Another page turner... an enjoyable whodunnit that keeps the twists and turns coming until the very end. - NEWCASTLE JOURNAL

A great read - IRISH EXAMINER

Ellory's a mighty talent who writes insightfully about love and redemption and loss and damnation. - PETERBOROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH
