The past isn't over ... An unspeakable act has ripped apart the idyllic town of Bakersville, Oregon, and its once-peaceful residents are demanding quick justice. But though a boy has confessed to the horrific crime, evidence shows he may not be guilty. Officer Rainie Conner, leading her first homicide investigation, stands at the center of the controversy. It's hitting too close to home, bringing back her worst nightmares, threatening to expose her secret sins. But with the boy's life at stake, she won't let anything stop her from finding the real killer. With the help of FBI profiler Pierce Quincy, Rainie comes closer to a deadly truth than she can imagine. Because out there in the shadows a man watches her and plots his next move. He knows her secrets. He kills for sport. He's already brought death to Bakersville and forever shattered the community. But what he has really come for is Rainie--and he won't leave until he has destroyed her.

This book touched close to home because it is a story about a young boy who brings his father's guns to school and kills two little girls. There is so much of this going on today, and it is scary. But Lisa Gardner did a great job with this book. Everyone wants to know why he did what he did and you will not be able to put this book down.

Wonderful read! Couldn't put the book down. Great characters & so full of suspense. Totally recommend this book!


Another awesome book by Lisa Gardner. It was full of mystery. One question I kept asking myself was what happened to this book? I had placed this book on hold and when I picked it up the book was so worn out looking. Other then that I really enjoyed this book.

She's an excellent writer. This book had, perhaps, too much information on serial killers, etc. Nevertheless, it was a page-turner and worth the read.
