The town exists for people who need to escape their pasts, though it's not clear if those in hiding are victims or perpetrators. Or, when the lines gets blurred, maybe both. Ask Casey.

Be prepared to take this book everywhere you go so you can read it if you get a few minutes anywhere! It is full of non stop action from the first page to the last. Suspenseful, shocking, scary with frightening visuals and I kept changing my mind who the culprit was.
Well written with extraordinary people who grow on you. I love the relationship between Casey and Dalton......however, my very favorite character is Storm, the puppy!!
