Madison Lieberman's father was accused of being a serial killer and eventually commits suicide. A year later, Madison is divorced and trying to make a new life for herself and her daughter. She has always believed in her father's innocence but when she finds a box of incriminating evidence in the crawl space at her parents' house, doubts creep in. Caleb Trovato is a true crime author who was never able to finish a book about Madison's father. When the killings start again, Madison and Caleb find themselves thrown together. Although this book was not my favorite Brenda Novak book, it was intriguing, hard to put down, and I never would have guessed who the culprit was!
Keeps you guessing until the end.
When the past won't go away . . .
The Seattle police suspect Madison Lieberman's father was the serial killer they call the "Sandpoint Strangler." Madison refuses to believe it. Her father is now dead, and all she wants is the chance to create a new life for herself and her six-year-old child.
Then she discovers something in the crawl space beneath her parent's house. Something that makes her question her father's innocence. Or the innocence of someone else who's equally close to her . . .
When another woman turns up dead, crime writer Caleb Trovato wonders whether they're dealing with a copycat killer. Or is the real Sandpoint Strangler still alive? Caleb's sure Madison knows more than she's telling, and he's determined to find out what. But he doesn't expect to fall in love -- or to lead Madison and her child into danger . . .
