From the author of Dark Time comes an exploration of a small Boston suburb shattered by the seemingly senseless murders of two young women. When a young reporter on the local weekly becomes involved in the investigation, she winds up closer to the events than she realized...and in greater jeopardy.
Brutal murders on successive nights have shocked the small town of Drayton. In their aftermath two young women are dead, two anguished families will confront a shattering loss, and residents must face the possibility that a serial killer lives among them.
To Brianna Cooper, a reporter for the Drayton Courier, even such horrific crimes would ordinarily mean little more than an assignment; but because the first victim was a friend, Brianna feels a greater personal involvement. Brianna doesn't realize that simply doing her job may well have consequences she could never have anticipated, and that the absolute truth can present its own dangers.
