Dark Truth: A Novelby Mariah Stewart
Synopses & Reviews
WILL THE TRUTH SET HER FREE–OR SET A TRAP?
Murder didn’t end Nina Madden’s life–it destroyed it. When her father was charged with the serial killings of several college students, Nina and her mother became pariahs in their small Maryland town. Though Nina never believed the hideous accusations, evidence led to her father’s conviction and guaranteed the death penalty. After the execution, Nina left Stone River to escape the hatred and persecution . . . but she couldn’t shake the lingering doubts.
More than twenty years later, those doubts are stirred to grim life. A new series of murders is plaguing Stone River: a killing spree that bears a striking resemblance to the one that sent Nina’s father to the death chamber. And Nina isn’t the only one disturbed enough by the gruesome events to take notice. Wes Powell, the cop who pursued the original case, can’t ignore the eerie similarities between the crimes . . . nor their harrowing implications. Drawn back into a mystery that refuses to die, Nina and Wes will cross paths on their dangerous quest–and find themselves in the crosshairs of a bloodthirsty predator.
In matters of crime, there are many versions of the truth.
More than twenty years after her father was arrested, convicted, and executed for killing several college students, Nina Madden, shaken by lingering doubts about the crimes, returns to Stone River to investigate a killing spree that bears a striking resemblance to those for which her father was executed, joining forces with Wes Powell to uncover the truth. Original.
In this follow-up to "Cold Truth" and "Hard Truth," it's been more than 20 years since Nina Madden's father was executed for multiple murders. Now, new murders occur, bearing a striking resemblance of those her father was accused of committing. Original.
