Tami Hoag is in a class by herself, beloved by readers and
critic s alike, with more than 22 million copies of her
books in print. With Hoag's first novel for Dutton, she
proves anew why the Chicago Tribune called her "one of the
most intense suspense writers around."
California, 1984. Three children, running in the woods
behind their school, stumble upon a partially buried female
body, eyes and mouth glued shut. Close behind the children
is their teacher, Anne Navarre, shocked by this discovery
and heartbroken as she witnesses the end of their innocence.
What she doesn't yet realize is that this will mark the end
of innocence for an entire community, as the ties that bind
families and friends are tested by secrets uncovered in the
wake of a serial killer's escalating activity.
Detective Tony Mendez, fresh from a law enforcement course
at FBI headquarters, is charged with interpreting those now
revealed secrets. He's using a new technique-profiling-to
develop a theory of the case, a strategy that pushes him
ever deeper into the lives of the three children, and closer
to the young teacher whose interest in recent events becomes
as intense as his own. As new victims are found and the
media scrutiny of the investigation bears down on them, both
Mendez and Navarre are unsure if those who suffer most are
the victims themselves-or the family and friends of the
killer, blissfully unaware that someone very close to them
is a brutal, calculating psychopath.
