Sara Harmon is at work when the news that a terrible accident has occurred at the park where her daughter, Katie, has gone on a group hike with her babysitter, Anna, she rushes to the scene to figure out what is going on. When Sara arrives, she discovers that the group hiking outing has turned into a tragedy and Anna, the sitter has fallen over a cliff and died with her daughter Katie, the only witness.
As she comforts her daughter, Sara tries to hide the small alarm that is beginning to sound in her head. She has a secret that she cannot share, and she senses that the Detective in charge, Kim Pierce, suspects there is something not shared. Was Anna’s death an accident? Could Katie be responsible?
It seems impossible to contemplate, but strange things have happened when Katie was around, and upset, before. Could the secret that she’s been guarding for so long be the reason? If Kim Pierce discovers who she really is, and what Katie could be, what will become of Katie?
The detective is determined to find the truth and as she does, the story becomes beautifully complex and intriguing. Rick Mofina creates a twisting, turning story that is impossible to untangle until he allows it. Using multi-faceted characters with deep and complex motivations, his prose commands attention, making it nearly impossible to put this one down until you have figured out the truth.
