The children surrounding the victim close ranks. The families turn their backs. Then a young girl is abducted, and it becomes clear that the first death is linked to an even more brutal crime, one far more shocking than anyone could have imagined. Meanwhile, detective Lena Adams, still recovering from her sister's death and her own brutal attack, finds herself drawn to a young man who might hold the answers. But unless Lena, Sara, and Jeffrey can uncover the deadly secrets the children hide, it's going to happen again.

"With the same graphic detail found in her first novel and in those by Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs, Slaughter has again written a fast-paced thriller for those not faint of heart." ( Library Journal)
"This is just the ticket for readers who like their crime fiction on the dark side." ( Booklist)

an A-rated thriller
fast moving thriller with an unconventional plot - devastatingly honest about what people are capable of.
Not a read for the sensitive soul because it involves heavy child abuse and some quite illustrate depictation of it.
