Dr. Lucas Hudson is filling in for the vacationing coroner in Blackhawk, Iowa. One autumn morning he is called to the scene of a suicide. The case seems simple enough until he discovers the body of a woman buried underneath the hanging corpse. Lucas has to find out who this woman is. . .
Years before, Meg Painter met Dylan Reid. It was the summer before high school and they became inseparable. Meg’s neighbor and long-time friend Jess seemed like the right choice but she could never forget Dylan. The choices Meg makes in the past collide with Lucas’s discovery in the present.
As one reviewer put it: “chillingly suspenseful and achingly tender”
