Nerve-shattering suspense from one of the most original and exciting new voices in thriller fiction.
From a broken childhood comes a deadly and unbreakable bond.
In 1985 in a North Texas backwater, two teenage boys made a chilling pact that would unite them forever in a dark and twisted loyalty.
Now one lies dead. And the man responsible is going to pay.
When a routine investigation comes to a violent and tragic end, Detective Joe Lucchesi takes leave from the NYPD and moves with his wife and son to a quiet village on the southeast coast of Ireland. They're happy. They're safe. And they're about to enter a nightmare more terrifying than the one they left behind.
When a young girl goes missing and the village closes ranks, Detective Lucchesi sets out to find the truth and uncovers a sinister trail that leads from the other side of the Atlantic and cuts directly to the very heart of his family.
His wife is lying. His son is lying. And a killer is lying in wait.
