Joseph Souza, acclaimed author of The Neighbor,
brings readers into the dark heart of a small town in this
riveting, relentlessly twisting new novel . . .
Lucy Abbott never pictured herself coming back to Fawn
Grove, Maine. Yet after serving time in Afghanistan, then
years spent as a sous chef in New York, sheâ€™s realized her
only hope of moving on from the past involves facing it
again. But Fawn Grove, like Lucy herself, has changed.
Lucyâ€™s sister, Wendy, is eager to help her adapt, almost
stifling her with concern. At the local diner, Lucy is an
exotic curiosityâ€”much like the refugees whoâ€™ve arrived in
recent years. When a fifteen-year-old Muslim girl is found
murdered along the banks of the river, difficult memories of
Lucyâ€™s time overseas come flooding back and she feels an
automatic connection. At first glance, the tragedy looks
like an honor killing. But the more Lucy learns about her
old hometown, the less certain that seems.
There is menace and hostility here, clothed in neighborly
smiles and a veneer of comfort. And when another teen is
found dead in a cornfield, his throat slit, Lucyâ€”who knows
something about hiding secretsâ€”must confront a truth more
brutal than she could have imagined, in the last place she
expected it . .
