They thought the killer had no motive. But these murders are not what they seem . . .

On 15th June 1994, Travis Green - husband, father, upstanding citizen - walked through the streets of Hartstead and killed eleven of his neighbours. The last victim was little Cassie Colman's father.

As the twenty-five-year anniversary approaches, Cassie tries to forget the past - even as her mother struggles to remember it at all. Then something hidden in her mother's possessions suggests the murders were not what everyone believes.

Cassie can't stop herself from digging up the past. But someone will do anything to keep it buried . . .
