“What Alfred Hitchcock did with movies, Harlan Coben does with novels,” raves Forbes magazine. His latest thriller will grip you and haunt you page after page as a New Jersey prosecutor learns you can’t escape the past…
Ever since the death of his wife, Paul “Cope” Copeland’s priorities have been his six-year-old daughter followed by his career—and both, thanks to his tenacious nature, are thriving. The other thing he’s never given up on is hope that one day his murdered sister will be laid to rest. Cope still remembers how dark it was that night at summer camp twenty years ago, when the bodies of two teenagers were discovered, victims of a psychotic slasher. Of the other two known to have entered the woods with them—his sister, Camille, and Gil Perez—no trace was ever found.
Now, called upon to view a new homicide, Cope is almost certain it’s Gil—and he’s a grown man! Does this mean Camille could still be alive, and if so, is she in danger? Cope understands reinvestigating the case risks opening a Pandora’s box of secrets about his family that would not bode well for a prosecutor on the rise. Then again, it reunites him with Lucy, his first love, whose father owned the camp. With her by his side, Cope is determined to get to the truth, knowing it lies in the murky interior of the woods…where the screams of the dead still clamor to be heard.
