This is the story of three best friends: one who was murdered, one who went to prison, and one who's been searching for the truth all these years . . .
When she was sixteen years old, Angela Wong—one of the most popular girls in school—disappeared without a trace. Nobody ever suspected that her best friend, Georgina Shaw, now an executive and rising star at her Seattle pharmaceutical company, was involved in any way. Certainly not Kaiser Brody, who was close with both girls back in high school.
But fourteen years later, Angela Wong's remains are discovered in the woods near Geo's childhood home. And Kaiser—now a detective with Seattle PD—finally learns the truth: Angela was a victim of Calvin James. The same Calvin James who murdered at least three other women.
To the authorities, Calvin is a serial killer. But to Geo, he's something else entirely. Back in high school, Calvin was Geo's first love. Turbulent and often volatile, their relationship bordered on obsession from the moment they met right up until the night Angela was killed.
For fourteen years, Geo knew what happened to Angela and told no one. For fourteen years, she carried the secret of Angela's death until Geo was arrested and sent to prison.
While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep. And what happened that fateful night is more complex and more chilling than anyone really knows. Now the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela Wong.
How far will someone go to bury her secrets and hide her grief? How long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it?


This was such page turner that I ended up starting it at 8pm and finishing at 2am! I literally could NOT put it down! You know from the beginning of the book what the 'bad' thing was, the murder of a teenage girl. BUT what you don't know is the why/ But is the why REALLY what you think it was, or is the truth even more dark and disturbing? THAT is what keeps yoou reading the pages, that and a sympathetic character of Geo. The shocker of an ending will leave youo up the rest of the night, wondereing where you missed the VERY subtle clues that things were NOT as they seemed! This is honna be THE book of the Summer, so be sure it is on your to -read list NOW for as soon as it comes out, you won't be sorry!
