From the Inside Flap:

Fifteen-year-old Caitlin Whittington, last seen waiting for a ride home from school, is the second girl in Paradise Falls to disappear in five months.  Fears grow that she won't be the last as the town begins to suspect a serial killer might be loose.

With her daughter's disappearance, Grace Whittington makes some surprising and unsettling discoveries about her stepson, Adam.  When she uncovers information that seems to implicate him, the fault lines of a happily blended family crack wide open.

The case falls to Detective Rayna Godwin, who is hampered by memories of her own murdered daughter and the suspicion that there is more to the string of unsolved disappearances than meets the eye.  When her ex-lover, FBI agent Jack Cody, is called in against Rayna's wishes, her job becomes even more difficult.

And Adam, scared and stung by the distrust of those closest to him, is afraid to speak the truth.

Paradise Falls is the riveting and provocative tale of a family torn apart by divided loyalties and a dedicated detective who meets her worst fears head on.  The razor sharp twists and turns will hold readers captive until its final, explosive conclusion.
