The Reverend Lee Barker went missing nineteen years ago...

And the people of Stillwater, Mississippi, believe they know
why. They're convinced he was murdered--by his stepson,
Clay Montgomery. But only Clay--and his mother and
sisters--can say for sure. They were the only ones there
that fateful night, the only ones who know what really
happened. And they're not talking.

Allie McCormick is a cold-case detective from Chicago.
After a particularly difficult divorce, she's returned to
Stillwater with her six-year-old daughter to find the peace
she once knew in her hometown, and to work for the
local police force while she's starting over. But when Clay's
powerful enemies join forces to put him behind bars, Allie
feels duty bound to uncover the truth. Her instincts tell her
he didn't murder the Reverend Lee Barker.

Maybe Clay's a dark and brooding man with more than his
share of secrets, but he was just sixteen at the time. And
he's not a cold-blooded killer. At least, that's what Allie
believes--until she finds proof that behind the preacher's
pious demeanor lurked the heart of a monster.

Then she has to ask herself whether justice has already
been done....
