You can’t go home again—and survive—in this mesmerizing crime novel by Meg Gardiner, “a top-tier mystery writer at the top of her game” (BookPage).

Rory Mackenzie vowed to never return to her hometown of Ransom River, California. But she comes back and does her civic duty. Now she’s juror number seven on a high-profile murder case.

While most of the town is focused on the tense and shocking circumstances of the trial, Rory’s return to Ransom River dredges up troubling memories from her childhood that she can no longer ignore. And in the wake of a desperate attack on the courthouse, Rory realizes exposing these dark skeletons has connected her to an old case that was never solved, and that bringing the truth to light just might destroy her.

Great read! Brilliant!!!

Finally, a novel with a different storyline. The formula for suspense/mystery is becoming as familiar as an old pair of shoes. This book is not that, it is a brand new pair of stilettos! Uncomfortable at times, not fitting exactly right, bug offering a good time if you stick with them! A storyline I couldn't foresee chapters ahead is rare and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Well paced, well laid out and even mostly made sense, the twists and turns actually made it more believable and enjoyable. I highly recommend this book.
