Everyone’s favorite hard-living detective is back in a gripping, unpredictable mystery you won’t be able to put down.
When Detective Sam Lawson arrives in a sleepy East Texas town to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a young woman, he soon discovers everyone has a something to hide. And the more he digs, the more questions he uncovers.
Are the scratch marks on the face of the woman’s arrogant husband really from a construction accident? Why is the rich investor suddenly so interested in the investigation? Who had been hiding in the woods behind the woman’s house? Why one of the woman’s friends allegedly leave town the same day she went missing?
With the help of a tough-as-nails sheriff’s sergeant and the medical examiner (who also happens to be his now-estranged girlfriend), Sam must navigate the tangled relationships of this small community to find the truth before it’s too late.
