Two children who mysteriously disappeared twenty-one years ago are the last thing on Lorna Temple's mind when she returns to her Pennsylvania hometown to sell the old family property in the wake of her parents' passing. But instead of memories, the fields where Lorna grew up yield something utterly chilling.

All those years ago, when nine-year-old Melinda Eagan vanished on her birthday, her foulmouthed older brother, Jason, quickly became the lone suspect. Yet when he went missing, too, the case turned cold. But Jason, it seems, never got far: His bones have been moldering on the Temples' land for two decades. As far as the local police are concerned, the book is closed on Melinda's murder-and Jason's death is justice served. But Lorna refuses to let the dead rest uneasily. She turns to private eye T. J. Dawson to dig up the dirt of the past and see what lies beneath. Only there's someone out there who hasn't forgotten-and who won't be the least bit forgiving about being exposed as a killer.

In matters of crime, there are many versions of the truth.

Four stars. Good book. If you read Mariah Stewart, you will know that she has several series going. Once in a while a character from one series will appear from another series. Don't worry, she will tie things together.
There is a lot of action in this book, and a lot of twists and turns. As for the romance/suspense----well there is very little romance and a lot of suspense. No real surprise ending. Once you are familiar with her style of writing, you can almost guess some aspects of the ending. Enjoy the book and the series. It is a good one. Quick and easy read, great to take on the plane or to the beach.

Another excellent suspense mystery which I enjoyed immensely. This starts out with the disappearance of two children. Twenty-one years later, after the death of Lorna Temple's mother and a visit to her hometown, you begin to receive answers to a lot of questions pertaining to the body count that is rising. But who is telling the truth?
Characters from the previous book in this series will arise. This is an intense story line which will surprise you in the end. You may, of course, be an avid mystery reader and have figured it out before you reach the end; but it is worth the ride.
