The First in the Gavin MacFadyen Suspense Series…
Two decades ago, a sleepy New England town is torn apart by murder when a group of teens lure their unsuspectingvictim to a lakeside beach. The prosecution’s witness is the troubled fifteen-year-old Lacey Watkins, who happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Haunted by the ghosts of her family’s past, Lacey has returned to this place of scandal. With the help of her sister Terri, she is starting over. With nowhere left to run, Lacey is struggling to build a life…until her sister is found dead. When she discovers crime-scene photos of two murders mixed in with her work, Lacey suddenly finds herself at the center of a police investigation...and the target of a killer’s obsession.
After twenty years with the New Haven Police Department, the ex-Detective Gavin MacFadyen is starting a new career as a private investigator. But when his ex-partner is killed in a suspicious ‘hit-and-run’, he is pulled back into that world of corrupt cops, child prostitution, gang murders, and crime bosses who litter the shore with headless corpses.
Gavin has secrets of his own, but Lacey needs an ally, now more than ever…because the murderous fury of an avenger is about to destroy them both.
