From New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth Adler comes a heart-pounding thriller that will keep you guessing until the very last page…
Evening Lake is an idyllic Massachusetts getaway with a close-knit community of long-time families. Detective Harry Jordan sees his lake home as a respite from solving crimes on the Boston streets—until his work catches up with him. One night, Harry is out for a walk when the Havnel house bursts into flames. As newcomers who have always kept to themselves, Lacey Havnel and her daughter, Bea, are nothing like their well-heeled neighbors—and now it's up to Harry to follow every lead and dig up every past secret…right down to the apparent knife wound that is found on Lacey's corpse. To complicate matters, a young neighbor carries a weighty secret about who he saw rowing on the lake that night. Nothing is what it seems in this peaceful vacation town, and nobody knows who they can trust as the death toll rises. Can Harry put a stop to a serial killer who is poised to strike again? When it comes to murder, the victim is always the last to know. And time is running out…
