The secrets are deep and dark in
the small Alabama town of Pine
Bluff, where sex, obsession and
jealousy lead to murder in Webb's breakout suspense debut. As a
series author, the talented Webb
has built a wide fan base that should
be thrilled with her vengeful and
chilling new tale.

Ten years ago, Clint Austin was convicted of the murder of cheerleader Heather Baker, largely due to the testimony of Emily Wallace. Angry at Clint's early parole, Emily returns to her hometown to find a way to make him pay. Clint, however, has other plans. He's determined to unlock the secret of who really killed Heather.

Emily's vengeful obsession gets a bad jolt when she begins to suspect that she may have made a horrible mistake and sent the wrong man to prison. But if Clint is innocent, how and why was evidence suppressed? Whose dark secrets were and are being protected? Finding out could get both Clint and Emily killed. (ST. MARTIN'S, Sep., 352 pp., $6.99)
