When seventeen-year-old Katherine McCall awakened one morning to find her beloved sister, Sara, brutally murdered, her whole life changed in the blink of an eye. Kat was named the prime suspect and, on a string of circumstantial evidence, charged and tried. While the jury found her innocent, not everyone else agreed, and her only choice was to go into hiding. But she carried a dark secret with her, one that made her worry she might actually have had something to do with Sara's death . . .
Now, years later, Kat is still haunted by her sister's unsolved murder and continues to receive chilling anonymous letters, but she has tried to move on with her life. Until, on the tenth anniversary of Sara's death, she receives a letter that makes the past impossible to ignore: "What about justice for Sara?" What about justice for Sara? And for herself? Kat realizes that going back to Liberty, Louisiana, might be the only way to move forward and find some peace. And there's a killer out there who was never caught.
But the town she's come back to is hardly different from the one she left. The secrets and suspicions still run deep. Kat has an ally in Detective Luke Tanner, son of the former Liberty police chief, but he may be her only one. With plenty of enemies, no one to trust and a killer determined to keep a dark secret buried, Kat must decide if justice is worth fighting—and dying—for.
Bestselling author Erica Spindler returns with a chilling new suspense novel about a woman who goes home ten years after her sister's murder to find the true killer
A 27-year-old woman's quest to uncover the truth behind her sister's murder propels this spine-tingling romantic thriller from bestseller Spindler (Watch Me Die). Katherine "Kat" McCall returns to her hometown of Liberty, La., 10 years after being acquitted of the bludgeoning murder of her older sister, Sara, in 2003. Having received random hate mail for the past decade, Kat is determined to find her sister's true killer. When someone breaks into her sister's old cottage, where Kat is staying, Kat informs Sgt. Luke Tanner of the Liberty PD, one of the few people left in town who actually believes in her innocence. As the attraction between the two heats up, Luke reluctantly accepts Kat's help in the search for Sara's murderer. Plenty of people had reason to want Sara dead, including Kat's former boyfriend, Ryan Benton. With red herrings aplenty, Spindler keeps the reader guessing until the last page.
