"Flashes of horror erupted in his mind like a strobe light; a pregnant corpse engulfed in flames; rotting bodies in deep black water. . ." After a fifteen year absence John Gainer returns to his home town of Clay, Texas to organize his father's funeral. He has bitter memories of a childhood tragedy which still haunts his dreams occasionally, but which he thought was firmly buried. The chance discovery of a human jawbone in a disused quarry awakens the past, and brings it closer to home than John first realizes. As he becomes increasingly enmeshed in a series of horrific events, he realizes that not only is his own life in jeopardy, but the lives of several others close to him. "This is a great thriller that keeps you guessing until the last page." "Kept the suspense going all the way through the book. Very well written I will read other books by this author!" -Goodreads.comshow more
