Bestselling author Melinda Leigh visits the small upstate New York town of Scarlet Falls to feature former prosecutor Morgan Dane. Following the death of her husband in the Iraq war, Morgan returns to Scarlet Falls to heal for herself and her three young daughters. But just as she starts to rebuild her life—and find love again—a new tragedy strikes putting Morgan once again in harm’s way.
Private investigator Lance Kruger was just a boy when his father vanished twenty-three years ago. Since then he’s lived under the weight of that disappearance—until his father’s car is finally dredged up from the bottom of Grey Lake. It should be a time for closure, except for the skeleton found in the trunk. A missing person case gone cold has become one of murder, and Lance and attorney Morgan Dane must face the deadly past that’s risen to the surface.
For Lance, the investigation yields troubling questions about a man he thought he knew. But memories can play dirty tricks. For Morgan, uncovering each new lie comes with a disquieting fear that someone is out there watching, because someone is killing every witness tied to this decades-old crime. Morgan and Lance follow in the shadows of a relentless killer and walk right into the cross fire.
