“Big Bad takes the crown. . . If you’re uncertain whether this book delivers beyond the basic premise of Law Enforcement Lady with Strange Past Encounters a Bad Thing – it does and it goes so far past tropes without resorting to wacky deus ex machinae.” – Steff McKenney
“My biggest complaint is that Mr. Galacar hasn’t written forty-eleven more books for me to read. Stephen King is one of my favorite authors, and I feel the same way about him if that tells you anything.” – Erik Henry Vick, Author of Demon King
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets the small-town atmosphere of Stephen King. . .
From the twisted imagination of award-winning author Christian Galacar comes a dark mystery thriller about the difference between living the stories we’re given and living the stories we dare to make for ourselves.
At the height of a blizzard, Molly Rifkin goes missing in her small New England community of Rockcliffe Island. But when she is found dead of an apparent suicide, the story doesn’t add up. There are more questions than answers. And there are those who would like to see the whole thing just go away.
But it won’t be that easy…
Molly’s sister is FBI agent Emma Shane, who has been hanging on to her career by a thread, and when her sister turns up dead under suspicious circumstances, she is forced to confront the horrific past they once shared in order to discover the truth of her death–and the course of her own future.
As Emma digs deeper into the mystery on Rockcliffe Island, she finds herself coming face-to-face with corruption, murder, and two of the island’s most powerful and dangerous families.
