As David enters his senior year of high school, a family secret emerges that could solve the mystery of why his mother was murdered two years ago.

Two years ago, David Crandall’s mother was murdered and with little evidence, no witnesses, and no motive, the crime was left unsolved by the police. Now, two years after the murder, a high school senior, David is unable to shake the sense that someone knows more than they’re letting on. He can’t get on his life because he is plagued by the thoughts of what happened back then.

Could someone in his small town know something about his mother’s death? His suspicion deepens as he uncovers clues to a scandalous family secret involving embezzlement.

But when, one night, he spies his father burying an old rifle in a deserted lot during a rainstorm, suspicion turns to fear. Is his own father the killer?

Critically acclaimed author Walter Sorrells crafts a shocking and fast-paced thriller inspired by a local newspaper headline.
