Publisher Description

A woman fleeing her past finds more than she bargains for in a new suspense series by New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestselling author Denise Grover Swank.

A woman on the run with no one to trust.  

With the ink barely dry on her new identity, Carly Moore just wants to disappear…but fate has other plans. 

Broken down car, next to nothing in her bank account, Carly is stuck in a Smoky Mountain town that time has forgotten. Drum is riddled with secrets and outsiders are eyed with distrust. Still, it isn’t until she witnesses a cold-blooded murder in a darkened parking lot, that she realizes she’s escaped one nightmare, only to land in another.

As the clock ticks down and more bodies pile up, Carly doesn’t know who to trust. If she doesn’t stop the killers, they just might stop her…permanently.

Wonderfully exciting.

Carly brings courage and honesty to Drum. This book will keep you guessing and wanting more. I couldn’t put it down as the suspense keeps coming.. great book. Denise Grover Swank did it again, got to my heart with her book.

A Cry is the Dark

Once again Denise has me falling in love with another set of characters. I always hate finishing her books because there is a void in my life until there is a new book. It is fun and exciting to follow Carly into the town of Drum.

I usually hate “continuation characters”

I was hesitant to jump into the new continuation series but spent my summer devouring all things Rose and Neely Kate, so decided to give the new series a go. I love DGS’s character development and story telling abilities. But am tired of series based on other characters that I’m not fully invested in. I read several other of her series after reading the Rose/Neely Kate books, and though I enjoyed them, I felt they did not give me that same have to read the next now moment on the same level as Rose. I feel Carly’s story is set up to do just that! I do love all things by Grover-Swank but Rose, Neely and now Carly are my favorites. ❤️
