Back Cover Blurb:
FBI Special Agent Cal Coulter gets called in to investigate the murder, which bears a terrifying resemblance to a series of killings committed thirty years ago: three teenage girls were found dead at the waterfall’s base, all bearing rose stems in their throats. But the high school football star was convicted and imprisoned for those murders, leading Cal to suspect that the killer is still out there.
Now, the body count is rising again. The monster’s sights are set on counselor Mona Monroe, Cal’s best friend’s widow…and the woman he’s always loved. Can Cal stop the killer before Mona becomes the next victim?
About the author:
Mona’s personal struggles, on top of the main mystery of the novel, which she was also wrapped up in, created emotional strife that drew me to her. She was such a multifaceted character. Cal’s guilt and regrets make him so human, yet at the same time, his FBI persona makes him larger than life. Together, these two had me on pins and needles, trying to figure them out as individuals, and as a pair. Herron also developed her supporting in such a manner that I really felt as if I knew them. Some of the characters were absolutely loveable, others were somewhat creepy, while others still barely registered on my radar until they did something noteworthy. But I will say this, everyone added to the story in their own way.
This is a novel that you simply HAVE TO read, word for word, maybe more than once. Will I be avidly following this series (and this author) from here on out? You can bet on it!
