#1 New York Times bestseller Lisa Gardner returns
with an unpredictable thriller that puts fan favorites D.D.
Warren and Flora Dane on a shocking new case that begins
with a vicious murder and gets darker from there.
A man is dead, shot three times in his home office. But his
computer has been shot twelve times, and when the cops
arrive, his pregnant wife is holding the gun.
D.D. Warren arrives on the scene and recognizes the
woman--Evie Carter--from a case many years back. Evie's
father was killed in a shooting that was ruled an accident.
But for D.D., two coincidental murders is too many.
Flora Dane sees the murder of Conrad Carter on the TV news
and immediately knows his face. She remembers a night when
she was still a victim--a hostage--and her captor knew this
man. Overcome with guilt that she never tracked him down,
Flora is now determined to learn the truth of Conrad's murder.
But D.D. and Flora are about to discover that in this case
the truth is a devilishly elusive thing. As layer by layer
they peel away the half-truths and outright lies, they
wonder: How many secrets can one family have?
