Publisher's Summary

2020 Florida Writers Association Royal Palm Literary Award Finalist in Blended Fiction

In the murky swamps of central Florida, a boy vanished on the way home one night.

No one heard his screams.

No one saw him struggle.

And the police have no answers.

From multi-award-winning author Sandie Will comes a modern Jekyll and Hyde psychological thriller that will have you pulling for the madman.

At age 15, Adrian Webster lost his younger brother in a tragic accident. He tried to mourn. He tried to move on. But all he could do was bury the pain. 

Ten years later, a boy named Wyatt, who belongs to his best friend, vanishes while riding his bike through Green Swamp in Central Florida. His friend has already lost his wife, and he does not want him to suffer the pain of losing a child, making Adrian obsess over finding Wyatt. 

So obsessed that he is plagued by visions. 

Ones that creep into the corners of his eyes. 

Ones that reveal the truth. 

Ones that force Adrian to choose between his friendship and unleashing the memories of the past, before Wyatt is gone forever and Adrian loses the one thing he loves most in life - his new family. 

Can his visions reveal the truth?

Not what I expected!

Loved it! The performance was a little hard to follow when it got into multiple characters speaking in conversation because I'm used to a change of tone or inflection but WOW this was a great listen. The ending was not what I was expecting at all! I'll be listening to this again soon!
