For Four Long Years, No One Has Known What Became of Julia Sayre

On the morning after this mother of two disappeared, her family sought the help of reporter Irene Kelly. But despite Irene's best efforts, until now only one person has known where to find Sayre: her killer.

Nick Parrish, brilliant and sadistic, already faces the death penalty in a torture-murder case. Now he wants to cop a plea — life imprisonment in exchange for directing police to the isolated mountain grave where he buried Julia Sayre. The D.A. agrees to the controversial deal, and form a specialized team of law enforcement and forensic experts to accompany Parrish on his grisly journey. When the Sayres and the newspaper pressure the D.A. to include Irene on the expedition, their wishes are honored over the protests of the team.

From the start, Parrish makes Irene the object of his unnerving attention. His knowing smile and relentless stares make her wonder if heavy chains, armed guards, and a protective search dog will be enough to keep him at bay.

But Nick Parrish's deadly plan to regain his freedom is already in motion, and Irene will need all her courage and ingenuity to remain the reporter — not the victim — in tomorrow's headlines.

Synopsis:

Years after Julia Sayre vanishes, one of death row's notorious criminals plea bargains for a life sentence by leading intrepid reporter Irene Kelly and officials to the Sierra Nevadas, where they will discover what had really happened to Julia. An Edgar Award winner for Best Novel.
