A modern master of suspense, critically acclaimed
author Charlie Donlea returns with a taut, gripping novel
about the deadly secrets hiding in plain sight . . .
The truth is easy to miss, even when itâ€™s right in front of
us. As a forensic reconstructionist, Rory Moore sheds light
on cold-case homicides by piecing together crime scene
details others fail to see. Cleaning out her late fatherâ€™s
law office a week after his burial, she receives a call that
plunges her into a decades-old case come to life once more.
In the summer of 1979, five Chicago women went missing. The
predator, nicknamed The Thief, left no bodies and no clues
behindâ€”until police received a package from a mysterious
woman named Angela Mitchell, whose unorthodox investigation
skills appear to have led to his identity. But before they
could question her, Angela disappeared. Forty years later,
The Thief is about to be paroled for Angelaâ€™s murderâ€”the
only crime the DA could pin on him. But the cryptic file
Rory finds in her fatherâ€™s law office suggests there is more
to the case, and Angela Mitchell, than what was fed to the
public, the details of which have been buried for four decades.
Roryâ€™s talents are tested as she begins reconstructing
Angelaâ€™s last days. Making one startling discovery after
another, Rory becomes helplessly entangled in the enigma of
Angela Mitchell and what happened to her. Drawing
connections between the past and present, Rory uncovers dark
truths about the reclusive victim, her father, and the man
called The Thief that send her down a twisting trail where
things may not be as they appear. As she continues to dig,
even Rory canâ€™t be prepared for the full, terrifying truth
that is emerging . . .
