Kay Lansing, the daughter of a former Carrington landscaper, surprises her grandmother when she marries Peter Carrington after a whirlwind courtship. Soon after, police discover the body of Susan Althorp on Carrington property. She'd been missing for more than two decades, and Peter
was the last person known to have seen her alive.
The police arrest Peter, charge him with Susan's murder and name him
as a person of interest in the drowning death of his wife Grace, who died several years ago. Kay continues to believe in her husband's innocence, despite the evidence against him. As Kay gets closer to the truth about Susan's murder and the disappearance of her own father, she finds herself in danger and unsure of who to trust. (Simon and Schuster, Apr., 318 pp., $25.95)
