  • "New York Times and #1 international bestselling author Linwood Barclay delivers the second spine chilling thriller set in the troubled town of Promise Falls, following the electrifying cliffhanger ending of Broken Promise. After the screen of a run-down drive-in movie theater collapses and kills four people, the daughter of one of the victims asks private investigator Cal Weaver to look into a recent break-in at her father's house. Cal discovers a hidden basement room where it's clear that salacious activities have taken place as well as evidence of missing DVDs. But his investigation soon becomes more complicated when he realizes it may not be discs the thief was actually interested in. Meanwhile, Detective Barry Duckworth is still trying to solve two murders one of which is three years old he believes are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound. As the lies begin to unravel, Cal is headed straight into the heart of a dark secret as his search uncovers more startling truths about Promise Falls.
