New York Times bestselling author Tanya Anne Crosby returns to the teeming marshes and crumbling plantations of Charleston, where a gruesome murder and kidnapping reawaken fears of a serial killer on the loose....
Augusta Aldridge believes in Ian Patterson's innocence, even after he was arrested for killing two young women and mutilating their corpses. Because she was with him the night one of the crimes occurred, hidden in the shadows beneath a beachside pier, locked in a wild, unthinking embrace with the man whose dangerous fascination may have fatally lured the other victims. Now that another body has been found, the police suspect a copycat killer, but Augusta is sure they have the wrong man behind bars. She's going to risk her reputation, and her life, to prove it...

I think the print would have been better. The narrator had a little problem with some of the southern sayings and the Gulla.
Augusta - she was more of the hero in this book and she stood by her beliefs.
Yes. The first book of the series. The only issue I have is that her ability to reproduce the "Gulla" dialect and some of the southern sayings may make it hard for someone not familiar with the sayings or dialect to think that there was an editing issue.
Near the end when Sadie finally made the decision that was right, but very difficult for a mother to make in connection with her child.
I grew up in the Charleston area and this book reminds me of the area. Ms. Cosby does an outstanding job in recreating the low country area. For anyone who has not visited the area Ms. Crosby's books do a great job in describing the history and bringing to light the heritage of the low country.
This is the follow up to Speak No Evil...it kept me on the edge of my seat...my husband & I spent an entire Sunday listening to this book & we were not disappointed! Strong women & lots of surprises...I can't say enough good things about this book...even better than the first...I can't wait for Book 3.
Mystery, who done it, medical, good YA, I'm in. light romance too. Bring on the gore but leave out the explicit love scenes please.
lies, psychopathy and closure
Cody befriending the cottonmouth (not the most memorable but a good moment)
I really like these characters. I wonder if I were one of the 3 sisters if I could forgive Sadie...There has to be a third book so we can see what's up with Savannah and her "gift" no one knows about.
