When her child’s life is at stake, a mother will do anything to save him.

Clara McNair is running out of time to save her son, James. When the two-year-old is diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, only an experimental treatment can save his life. She desperately needs money to pay for the surgery, but she’ll have to travel back to the site of her darkest memories to get it.

Clara has escaped the demons of her youth—or so she thinks. It’s been ten years since the mysterious disappearance of her parents. Widely suspected of murdering her mother and father, Clara fled west to start a new life. Now, a documentary film crew is offering cold, hard cash—enough to pay for James’s treatment—in exchange for the sordid secrets of her past.

With no other choice but to delve into a long-ago tragedy, Clara must unravel the lies surrounding that terrible night. Facing hostile gossip, Clara is fighting to clear her name and learn the truth about what really happened. But how far will she go into the dark to save her son—and herself?

My Thoughts

Clara McNair has returned, with her 2 year old son James, to Hickory Hills on the 10th anniversary of her parents’ disappearance and murder. James is in need of experimental Cancer treatment and to obtain the money she agrees to do a documentary on the murders. And maybe in the process, figure out who murdered them. However, the people of Hickory Hills don’t want her there because they have always believed that she committed the murders. What was once a closed case, has now been reopened when the remains are found on the McNair property after she returns. And now her and her son’s life are in jeopardy. Who wants them dead?

There are so many twists and turns and so engrossing that I had a hard time putting it down. The action and suspense were fluid. The writing exceptional. I thought I had it figured out but was still surprised by the ending.

A thrilling read that I highly recommend!
