A serial killer terrorizes a small California town in this gripping thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Tami Hoag.

But as new victims are found and pressure from the media grows, Vince and Anne find themselves circling the same small group of local suspects, unsure if those who suffer most are the victims themselves—or those close to the killer, blissfully unaware that someone very near to them is a murderous psychopath…
