Publisher's Summary

A Peaceful Southern Town. A Terrible Evil. The Power of Silence.

Journalist Avery Chauvin is devastated when she receives word of her father’s suicide. How could her father, a dedicated physician, have taken his own life?

Returning to her hometown of Cypress Springs, Louisiana, Avery desperately searches for answers. Instead she hears whispered rumors of strange happenings, of neighbors who go missing in the night. She discovers a box of 15-year-old newspaper articles in her father’s house, all covering the same event - the brutal murder of a local woman. Why had her father kept them?

Then the past and present collide. A woman is found savagely murdered. An outsider passing through town vanishes. And Avery begins to wonder, could her father have been murdered? As each step closer to the truth exposes yet another layer of deceit, Avery must face the fact that in this peaceful Southern town a terrible evil resides, protected - until now - by the power of silence.
