What happens when a killer who can't be caught threatens to kill your children next? A town and a mother are forced to confront their worst fears in this hair-raising suspense novel from the author of Roots of Murder.Newly widowed mother Nell McGraw struggles with her outsider status as she runs the newspaper founded by her husband's grandfather. But a paper can't turn away from the stories that others ignore, like the body of a child found in the Gulf. At first it seems tragic, a child lost because of carelessness. Then another child goes missing. Disgusted by the turf war between the sheriff and the police chief, Nell barely manages to keep her journalistic distance . . . until the killer contacts her, telling her that her children could be next. Now Nell must match wits with a psychopath who taunts her, daring her and the police to catch him before he can kill again.
