About this title

Synopsis:

Two murders with the same modus operandi committed one year apart lead La Porte deputy sheriff Sam DeGheyn to the conclusion that the man serving time for the first murder has been unjustly imprisoned. 100,000 first printing. Mystery Guild Main. Lit Guild Alt.

From the Inside Flap:

In a sleepy resort town, Maud Chadwick waits tables at the Rainbow Cafe. Her confidant is Sheriff Sam DeGheyn and what they have in common is obsession. Maude doesn't want her son to leave home, and Sam cannot let go of the unsolved murders of three local women -- or his intuition that the killer is still out there. How these lives intertwine reveals a rich and startling story of parents and children and the pain they cause one another.
"Gripping."
