Fifteen-year-old Caitlin Whittington, last seen waiting for a ride home from school, is the second girl in Paradise Falls to disappear in five months. Fears grow that she won’t be the last as the town begins to suspect a serial killer might be loose.
With her daughter’s disappearance, Grace Whittington makes some surprising and unsettling discoveries about her stepson, Adam. When she uncovers information that seems to implicate him, the fault lines of a happily blended family crack wide open.
The case falls to Detective Rayna Godwin, who is hampered by memories of her own murdered daughter and the suspicion that there is more to the string of unsolved disappearances than meets the eye. When her ex-lover, FBI agent Jack Cody, is called in against Rayna’s wishes, her job becomes even more difficult.
And Adam, scared and stung by the distrust of those closest to him, is afraid to speak the truth.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
All of my books have been mysteries, which I enjoy because I like “knowing” the full story. Too often in real life we are left with questions about how, why, etc.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Read widely and critiquely, and write, don’t just think about it.
