Image of Secrets to the Grave

The follow-up to last year’s Deeper Than the Dead returns to Oak Knoll, Calif., and the aftermath of the See-No-Evil killer. The pre-Internet setting highlights how much information technology we take for granted. As this story traces the paths of both possible killers and victims, it carries a hefty emotional punch and delivers spine-chilling suspense!

While Oak Knoll is awaiting the trial of See-No-Evil killer Peter Crane, artist Marissa Fordham is viciously stabbed and mutilated. Miraculously, 4-year-old Haley Fordham survives being nearly strangled, but can she provide any answers? Newlyweds Anne Navarre Leone and ex-FBI agent Vince Leone are brought into the case by Det. Tony Mendez. Can Anne unlock the identity of “Bad Monster” from Haley’s mind? Meanwhile, Tony and Vince trace Melissa’s life and find that nothing is as it first appears.
