Summary: Everybody in Elkhart has a secret and if they say they don’t, they’re lying. Three years have passed since Tristan Morrow returned home after her harrowing kidnapping ordeal with her former English teacher, Bernard Kendricks. A sense of peace has taken over the Morrow Manor, but it will not last forever. A killer of women is on the loose in Elkhart and has already claimed the lives of two young women. An investigation ensues and the murder scenes send Sergeant DiNolfo’s mind spiraling back to a similar murder that happened exactly twenty years prior: The murder of Tiffany O’Mara.
Angie O’Mara is a 38-year old law assistant who has certainly seen better days. At the age of 18, she fled Elkhart after the murder of her sister and she never looked back, escaping a past that haunted her every waking moment. She settled in Seattle and married her boyfriend Jeremy, but she wouldn’t get her happily-ever-after. On June 15, 2000, not only is her marriage over, but she finds herself homeless and unemployed. With her life in shambles, she finds herself back in the one place she spent her life running from, starting into the eyes of the one person who poisoned her dreams.
Will DiNolfo and her officers catch the killer before a third victim is claimed? When their three main suspects turn out to be innocent, the Elkhart Police Department is at a loss until a citizen comes forward with some crucial information: Tristan Morrow knows who is responsible for the murders. But does the information come too late? And how does this relate to the murder case of Tiffany O’Mara? Tristan soon learns that not even the dead can keep their secrets buried forever.
Only one thing is certain, though. The past has a way of catching up with you, and all secrets must come to light.
