Six friends. One killer. Who do you trust? A teen girl
goes missing after a night of partying; thirty years
later, the discovery of her body reopens a cold case in a
gripping thriller for readers of Tana French, The Woman
in Cabin 10, and the Lynley series.
On a scorching July night in 1983, a group of teenagers
goes camping in the forest. Bright and brilliant, they
are destined for great things, and the youngest of the
groupâ€”Aurora Jacksonâ€”is delighted to be allowed to tag
along. The evening starts like any otherâ€”they drink, they
dance, they fight, they kiss. Some of them slip off into
the woods in pairs, others are left jealous and
heartbroken. But by morning, Aurora has disappeared. Her
friends claim that she was safe the last time they saw
her, right before she went to sleep. An exhaustive
investigation is launched, but no trace of the teenager
is ever found.
Thirty years later, Auroraâ€™s body is unearthed in a
hideaway that only the six friends knew about, and Jonah
Sheens is put in charge of solving the long-cold case.
Back in 1983, as a young cop in their small town, he had
known the teenagersâ€”including Auroraâ€”personally, even
before taking part in the search. Now heâ€™s determined to
finally get to the truth of what happened that night.
Sheensâ€™s investigation brings the members of the camping
party back to the forest, where they will be confronted
once again with the events that left one of them dead,
and all of them profoundly changed forever.
This searing, psychologically captivating novel marks the
arrival of a dazzling new talent, and the start of a new
series featuring Detective Chief Inspector Jonah Sheens.
