The Sunday Times bestselling author of Black-Eyed Susans returns with an atmospheric Texan thriller
Ten years ago Trumanell Branson disappeared.
Her brother, Wyatt, lives as a pariah, cleared of any involvement but tried and sentenced in the court of public opinion.
So when he finds a lost girl he believes she is a sign, someone to lead him to his sister and finally clear his name.
Instead she leads him to young police officer Odette Tucker. She knows they must tread carefully - the town, still waiting for its missing girl to come home, is a tinderbox and this new arrival might just set it alight.
“Beautifully written and wonderfully chilling”
“Utterly compelling . . . the writing is mesmeric ”
“Strong characterisation, haunting images, a wonderful sense of place”
