Twenty years ago, Kate Cranbrook's eyewitness testimony sent the wrong man to prison for rape and murder. When new evidence exonerates him, Kate says that in the darkness and confusion, she must have mistaken her attacker's identity.
She is lying.
Kate would like nothing better than to turn her back on the past, but she is trapped in a stand-off with the real killer. When a body turns up on her doorstep, she resorts to desperate measures to free herself once and for all from a secret that is ruining her life.

Elizabeth Buhmann is originally from Virginia, where her first novel is set, and like her main character, she lived several years abroad while growing up. She graduated magna cum laude from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, and has a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Pittsburgh. For twenty years, she worked for the Texas Attorney General as a researcher and writer on criminal justice and crime victim issues. Elizabeth now lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband, dog, and two chickens. She is an avid gardener, loves murder mysteries, and has a black sash in Tai Chi.Review:
From Publishers Weekly: (Starred Review) "The bill for lies told decades earlier comes due for Kate Cranbrook, the complex narrator of Buhmann's superior debut. . . a jaw-dropping, but logical, climax [that] will make veteran mystery readers eager for more of Buhmann's work."
"Buhmann does a superb job of letting Kate peel away layer after layer of the façade she's spent her lifetime creating...The last twenty pages of the book have more twists than a bag of pretzels. ... Buhmann's storytelling is in a class with Lolita." --The Chaotic Reader
