The gripping new crime novel in the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman. On a crisp September morning, Rina Decker stumbles upon human remains once buried deep beneath the forest grounds. She calls her husband, Peter, a former detective lieutenant with LAPD. Within hours, a beautiful woodland is transformed into a frenetic crime scene.
As Decker and his partner, Tyler McAdams, further investigate, they realize that they’re most likely dealing with a missing student from the Five Colleges of Upstate – a well respected institution where Rina works. And when more human remains are found in the same area, Decker and McAdams know this isn’t just a one-off murder case. Winding their way through a dangerous labyrinth of suspects, they race to protect their community from a psychopathic killer still in the area –and on the hunt for a fresh victim.
