Description

Houston social, worker Sally Hopkins has had it. Disillusioned, burned-out, single, and just shy of forty, she decides to try to start over. She quits her big-city job and returns to her hometown, the sleepy East Texas town of Maryvale.When Sally calls her uncle Ed, the town sheriff, to find out if she can stay with him for a while, she is surprised to discover that Ed needs her help. Like any small town, Maryvale has its share of family troubles - alcoholism, domestic violence, and child abuse. But now the town has a far more frightening problem.Over the summer, a rash of arsons and brutal animal mutilations has set the town on edge. Ed wants Sally to keep an eye on things, talk to the townspeople, and see if she can identify the culprit.Sally knows that as bad as these attacks are, they are only the first signs of greater violence. Her training tells her that the perpetrator is probably young and male, with an abusive childhood, the kind of personality that will one day develop into a sexual predator or serial killer. She tells Ed that they have only a small window of time to locate him before he moves on to even more brutal crimes.But it's already too late. A young woman is brutally and obscenely murdered. Suspicion and fear sweep through Maryvale, and doors are slammed in Sally's face. But Sally enlists the help of a handsome but reserved young state trooper, who rekindles her long-buried passion for life. Together they break through the wall of secrets and lies to stop the killer before he strikes again.show more
