Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When seventeen-year-old Katherine McCall awakened one morning to find her beloved sister, Sara, brutally murdered, her whole life changed in the blink of an eye. Kat was named the prime suspect and, on a string of circumstantial evidence, charged and tried. While the jury found her innocent, not everyone else agreed, and her only choice was to go into hiding. But she carried a dark secret with her, one that made her worry she might actually have had something to do with Saras death . . .

Now, years later, Kat is still haunted by her sisters unsolved murder and continues to receive chilling anonymous letters, but she has tried to move on with her life. Until, on the tenth anniversary of Saras death, she receives a letter that makes the past impossible to ignore: "What about justice for Sara?" What about justice for Sara? And for herself? Kat realizes that going back to Liberty, Louisiana, might be the only way to move forward and find some peace. And theres a killer out there who was never caught.

But the town shes come back to is hardly different from the one she left. The secrets and suspicions still run deep. Kat has an ally in Detective Luke Tanner, son of the former Liberty police chief, but he may be her only one. With plenty of enemies, no one to trust and a killer determined to keep a dark secret buried, Kat must decide if justice is worth fighting—and dying—for.

Bestselling author Erica Spindler returns with a chilling new suspense novel about a woman who goes home ten years after her sister's murder to find the true killer

Review:

"A 27-year-old woman's quest to uncover the truth behind her sister's murder propels this spine-tingling romantic thriller from bestseller Spindler (Watch Me Die). Katherine 'Kat' McCall returns to her hometown of Liberty, La., 10 years after being acquitted of the bludgeoning murder of her older sister, Sara, in 2003. Having received random hate mail for the past decade, Kat is determined to find her sister's true killer. When someone breaks into her sister's old cottage, where Kat is staying, Kat informs Sgt. Luke Tanner of the Liberty PD, one of the few people left in town who actually believes in her innocence. As the attraction between the two heats up, Luke reluctantly accepts Kat's help in the search for Sara's murderer. Plenty of people had reason to want Sara dead, including Kat's former boyfriend, Ryan Benton. With red herrings aplenty, Spindler keeps the reader guessing until the last page.

Synopsis:

A WOMAN DETERMINED TO UNCOVER THE TRUTH ABOUT HER PAST.

When rebellious seventeen-year-old Katherine McCall awakened one morning to find her sister, Sara, viciously murdered, her whole life changed in the blink of an eye. Kat was named the prime suspect, charged, and tried—and found innocent. But not everyone agreed with the verdict, and Kats only choice was to leave her family behind and go into hiding. She carried a dark secret with her for years…until, on the tenth anniversary of Saras death, Kat receives an anonymous letter that reads: What about justice for Sara?

A KILLER WHO WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO KEEP THE TRUTH BURIED…

When Kat returns to her Louisiana hometown to investigate the days surrounding Saras death she learns that the cost of justice may be too high. The murderer, who seems to have never left Liberty, is on her trail. In a place filled suspicion and secrets, Kat has only one ally: Sergeant Luke Tanner. He is the son of Libertys former police chief, the very man who led the rush to judgment against her. With no one to trust and a killer fighting to keep a dark secret from coming to light, Kat must decide if justice is worth fighting—or dying—for.

 “Spindlers [novels] boast fast-paced action and emotional tension…for readers who like to keep guessing all the way to the end.”—RT Book Reviews
