Publisher's Summary

A missing young woman, ten years gone. A town still held in the grip of an unsolved mystery. A breathtaking novel of psychological suspense by the bestselling author of We Were Mothers.

A decade ago in upstate New York, art student Emma McCullough walked into the woods and was never seen again. It’s a mystery that still haunts her bucolic university town and her broken family, especially her sister Haley, whose need for closure has become an obsession. But now, finally, the first piece of evidence in the vanishing has been found: Emma’s bracelet, lodged in a frozen piece of earth at the bottom of a gorge. For Emma’s three best college friends, for a beloved former teacher, and for Haley, the chilling trinket is more than a clue in a resurrected cold case. It’s a trigger. 

Then a woman is attacked during an open house, and the connections between the two crimes, ten winters apart, begin to surface. So do the secrets that run as deep and dark as the currents in this quiet river town.

Critic Reviews

“Narrator Rebecca Mozo builds taut suspense from the start of this audiobook thriller about the unsolved disappearance of an art student named Emma. Voicing Emma's sister, Haley, 10 years after the disappearance, Mozo imparts an undercurrent of dread upon learning the police have found new evidence. Narrator Lori Prince, portraying Emma in the past, adds an exciting and quirky dimension to the novel's backstory.” (AudioFile Magazine)

“Part murder mystery, part interpersonal drama, a serviceable who-done-it (or did anyone?) with a host of compelling characters...this novel has just enough twists to keep its readers along for the ride. Sleuths will delight in piecing together clues and untangling lies alongside the protagonists.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Sise (We Were Mothers) weaves together the stories of two crimes in Waverly, N.Y., in this crafty novel…Sise’s talent is her ability to keep readers guessing about which character might be covering for whom, and she keeps the surprises coming. This will appeal to fans of Big Little Lies.” (Publishers Weekly)
