The year is 1993. Rookie crime beat reporter Evie Jones is haunted by the unsolved murder of her best friend Lianne Gagnon in 1982, back when both girls were eleven. The suspected killer, a repeat offender named Robert Cameron, was never apprehended. Now twenty-two and living alone for the first time, Evie is obsessively drawn to researching the real story of who killed Lianne. She leans on childhood friend David Patton for help – but why does every trail seem to lead back to David’s own father, Graham? As she gets closer and closer to the truth, Evie becomes convinced that the killer is still at large – and that he’s coming back for her.
