Synopses & Reviews
A riveting atmospheric suspense debut that explores the dark side of a small town and asks: How can we uncover the truth when we are lying to ourselves? "Herrera has a gift for drawing vivid characters and rich settings. A voicey and compelling debut that is not to be missed."--Karin Slaughter
After reckless behavior costs NYPD detective Leigh O'Donnell her job and her marriage, three suspicious drownings in her hometown cause her to return to Copper Falls, Ohio, in the hopes that solving a triple homicide just might get her life back on course. Leigh had stayed away from Copper Falls for decades, even though her trio of loving uncles and her brother still call it home. While Copper Falls may seem idyllic, something rotten lies at its core. Headstrong and intuitive, Leigh isn't afraid to face a killer, but she has to do more than that to discover the truth about what happened to those men. She must unravel a web of secrets going back generations, confronting the lies Copper Falls was built on, and, in doing so, rocking the foundation of her beliefs about herself. Perfect for fans of Mare of Easttown, this taut debut is a haunting look at how the search for truth often leads back to the most unlikely of places.
