"There's something mesmerizing about Hiebert's storytelling voice." - The New York Times Book Review

From the author of the acclaimed Dream with Little Angels comes a haunting novel of a long-ago tragedy that echoes through small-town Alabama as one woman tries to track down a serial killer . . .

Detective Leah Teal knows most of the secrets in her hometown of Alvin, but there are always surprises. Like the day she agrees to take her daughter to see a psychic for a reading. The psychic hones in on Leah instead, hinting at a string of gruesome killings-and insisting that she intervene to prevent more. Of course, when you go looking for trouble, you never know how much you'll find.

Sure enough, the psychic's scant clues lead Leah to a grisly cold case from six years ago. A young woman was found shot to death, her eyelids sewn shut. As Leah digs deeper, a second unsolved case surfaces with the same pattern. While her shrewd young son, Abe, observes from the sidelines, Leah races to stop another horrific murder-unaware of just how deep the roots of evil can go . . .

"Engaging. . . . Readers will keep guessing whodunit to the end." -Publishers Weekly
