Ten years ago, homecoming queen Trumanell Branson vanished.
Her farewell message?
A bloody handprint left on a wall.

Back then, the police cleared her brother Wyatt of any crime. But now a TV documentary has judged otherwise. And old suspicions are reignited.

Yet when Wyatt finds a lost girl wandering a lonely highway, he convinces himself she's a sign. Someone to lead him to his sister. To clear his name.

Watching him is police officer Odette Tucker. She's got history with the Branson family. And she knows they must tread carefully.

Odette is determined to solve both cases, but will digging into this town's deeply buried secrets do more harm than good?

And what will happen when the shocking truth is finally exposed?

We Are All the Same in the Dark is the nail-biting thriller from the Sunday Times bestselling author, perfect for anyone obsessed with HBO's Mare of Easttown.
