From the award-winning author of The Absence of Mercy comes an emotionally powerful and gripping psychological thriller about the dark secrets dividing a family and community and the dangers of digging into the past.
When Erin Reece left Wolf Point, she planned to never set foot in her childhood hometown again. But an urgent phone call from her father's doctor leaves Erin with no choice but to return to a place filled with painful memories and wounds that never closed. Decades ago, people in Wolf Point started disappearing without a trace--including Erin's mother--and no explanation was ever found.
It's been nineteen years since the last disappearance, but the town is still steeped in suspicion and haunted by the ghosts of the missing. No one is thrilled to see Erin back, including her former best friend Robbie, who has changed from a spirited, fearless boy to a reclusive shut-in.
Then a police investigation reveals a shocking development. Two bodies have been discovered, buried in makeshift graves for years . . . on the Reece family's land. After so many years without answers, the community wants justice, and the evidence against David Reece is damning--but Erin knows her father couldn't possibly have done this. With David severely ill in the hospital, it's up to Erin to quell the witch hunt. But to absolve her father, Erin is forced to unearth long-buried secrets from the past. Because in Wolf Point, everyone knows more than they are letting on.
