Lacy Jane Oliver is going back home. The past has finally caught up with her and her three best friends. Ten years earlier, they vowed to keep a secret, and that secret has resurfaced with hideous results. A body has been found and Lacy and her friends know something -- at least that's what police chief Rick Summers thinks.

Lacy is the only woman that Rick has ever loved, and that she's a key player in the unfolding drama makes it hard for him to keep things separate. But when Lacy's best friends start turning up dead, he can no longer pretend that he doesn't care for her and will do all that he can to keep her alive.

This story opens with a bang and carries the momentum until the final, chilling end. Webb has constructed a suspenseful novel that will leave the reader spellbound. (Mar., 320 pp., $5.99)
