Eight years after her blockbuster hit TELL ME, #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson at last brings her chilling brand of Southern Gothic back to the beautiful city of Savannah, GA, where crime writer Nikki Gillette and her husband, Detective Pierce Reed, find a cold case leading to a new nightmare…

The old Beaumont mansion in Savannah is a rotting shell of its once-grand self, especially after a disastrous hurricane sweeps through Georgia. The storm does more than dislodge shutters and shingles. It leads to a grisly find in the cellar. Three graves. But only two skeletons…

For crime writer Nikki Gillette, the discovery is a gift, the perfect subject for her next book—though her husband, Detective Pierce Reed, has made her promise not to keep involving herself in dangerous police business. But despite the increasing tension between them, Nikki can’t stay away from this story. Rumors are widespread that the burial site is the resting place of the Duval sisters—three young girls who went to the movies with their older brother, Owen, twenty years ago, and never returned. Forensics confirms that the remains belong to Holly and Poppy Duval. But where is the youngest sister, Rose?

Owen Duval was, and remains, the prime suspect, alibi or no. But as Nikki and Reed delve deep into the mystery, fractures in the case begin to show. There is more to the sisters’ disappearance than anyone ever guessed. Far from an isolated act, those deaths were just the beginning. And there will be no rest, and no relenting, until the killer has buried the twisted truth along with his victims…
