A small town hides a big secret
Longbill Beach, 1982. Emily Vaughn gets ready for the prom. For an athlete, who is smart and well-liked, this night that should be the highlight of high school. But Emily has a secret. And by the end of the evening, that secret will be silenced forever.
Forty years later, Emily’s murder remains a mystery. Her tight-knit group of friends closed ranks; her respected, wealthy family retreated inwards; the small town moved on from her grisly attack. But all that’s about to change.
US Marshal Andrea Oliver arrives on her first assignment: to protect a judge receiving death threats. But, in reality, Andrea is there to find justice for Emily. The killer is still out there--and Andrea must discover the truth before she gets silenced, too.
“It’s Slaughter’s prodigious gifts of characterization that make her stand out among thriller writers.” —Washington Post
