Book SynopsisThe USA Today bestselling author of Somebody's Daughter and Layover presents a twist-filled thriller about a troubled family with long-buried secrets... The past has arrived uninvited at Jason Danvers's door in the form of his younger sister, Hayden, a former addict who severed all contact with her family as her life spiraled out of control. Now she's clean and sober but in need of a desperate favor--she asks Jason and his wife to take care of her teenage daughter for forty-eight hours while she handles some business in town. But Hayden never returns. Her disappearance brings up more unresolved problems from Jason's past, including the abrupt departure of his best friend on the night of their high school graduation twenty-seven years earlier. When a body is discovered in the woods, the mysteries of his sister's life--and possible death--deepen. One by one these events will shatter every expectation Jason has ever had about families, about the awful truths that bind them, and the secrets that should be taken to the grave.
