“Shannon Baker gets better with every book. A superb read.” —Jess Lourey, bestselling author of The Quarry Girls

Two girls gone. One haunting past that refuses to stay buried.

Jamie Butler is a mystery.

To the residents of sun-scorched Tucson, she’s just a retired New York cop looking for a fresh start. Few know of the dark cloud that follows her: the traumatic murder of her daughter and her own ensuing mental breakdown. But as Jamie starts anew, building a life with the Arizona Rangers and kindling a romance with Deputy Rafe Grijalva, a sinister echo rises: a girl disappears under eerily similar circumstances to her own daughter.

When Jamie and Rafe dig deeper, they unearth chilling patterns too haunting to overlook, reminiscent of a nightmare Jamie believed was laid to rest.

But as evidence emerges, and with Jamie’s unstable mental state casting shadows of doubt, she’s swiftly thrust into the eye of suspicion. Now, she’s ensnared in a race against time, desperate to save another and confront her past.

As the desert sun beats down, one thing becomes chillingly apparent: the line between Jamie’s twisted memories and a horrifying reality is blurring beyond recognition.
