Sixteen years ago, book editor Nina Madden's professor father, Stephen, was convicted of being the Stone River killer and rapist. He died in prison and now, upon the death of Olivia, her stepmother, Nina returns to Stone River to face the past. She receives a box of her father's belongings, which includes a sealed letter from her father to Olivia. The contents shock Nina: Her father implies
that Olivia killed the college students
in revenge for his extramarital affairs.

Confused, Nina turns to one of her authors, true-crime specialist Regan Landry. Detective Wes Powell is skeptical
of their claims, but when Nina and Regan turn up new clues, he feels
obligated to investigate. When another student is murdered, however, it seems that the real killer is still on the loose.

Malignant secrets abound in this
latest chiller from suspense maven Stewart. The questions and intrigue build to a fever pitch, and there's tons
of searing psychological suspense.
