Two generations of sisters. An unthinkable crime. A secret that could ruin a family.
For fifteen years, Rachel Cunningham has chosen to remain in a psychiatric facility, tortured by gaps in her memory and the certainty that she is responsible for her parents’ deaths. But when a young reporter reveals new details about their murders, Rachel returns to the place where she once felt safest in a quest for answers: her family’s sprawling log cabin in the remote forests of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula wilderness.
As Rachel begins to uncover what really happened the day her parents died, she learns that home can be a place of unspeakable evil, and that family bonds can be the most treacherous of all.
Coming June 2020 from G.P. Putnam’s Sons.
