In the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, in a small town that’s been torn apart by violence, a teenage girl is kidnapped. A girl who’s been through enough: her mother was killed when she was young, her dad is an alcoholic, and her brother is in prison. Now, this teenage girl is the only one left in her family.
The police are stumped. They have no leads. No one knows what happened to the girl.
Then, one day, the girl’s body is found. She’s been brutally raped and murdered.
The town is in shock. No one knows who to trust.
The detectives investigating the case are determined to find the killer. They have no choice.
But they soon realize that the killer is one of them.
The town is ruled by fear and violence. Everyone is afraid of someone. The detectives are the only ones who can catch the killer; 8vo; 385 pages.
