Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint.

One runs for her life. One is left behind...

Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy smalltown family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father - Pikeville's notorious defence attorney - devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.

Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps to become a lawyer herself - the archetypal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again - and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatised - Charlie is plunged into a nightmare.

Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it's a case which can't help triggering the terrible memories she's spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime which destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won't stay buried for ever...

The stunning new standalone thriller, with a chilling edge of psychological suspense, from the No. 1 bestselling author of the Will Trent and Grant County series.

“Couldn't put it down ”

Possibly the best book ever written by this author - a brilliant plot with so many unexpected twists and characters that jump right off the page. Hard to say too much without spoilers but basically if you enjoy gritty... More

“Multi layered”

A good multi layered thriller.

Many plot lines to keep you interested in the characters.

However, I felt it lacked the pace of a thriller.
