About this title

Synopsis:

In Daniel Palmer's electrifying, emotionally charged thriller, a high school soccer coach finds his world upended by shocking accusations and long buried secrets. . .
Nine years after he left Shilo, New Hampshire, former Navy Seal Tom Hawkins has moved back. It's not an auspicious homecoming. Tom has returned to raise his teenage daughter, Jill, following the murder of his ex-wife, Kelly. Despite Tom's efforts to stay close to Jill by coaching her high school soccer team, Kelly's bitterness fractured their relationship. But together, they are on the mend, and life in Shilo is starting to shape up into something approaching normal.
Normal doesn't last long. Shilo's police sergeant makes it clear that Tom is his chief suspect in Kelly's death. In the days that follow, an anonymous blog post alleges that Coach Hawkins is sleeping with one of his players, Internet rumors escalate, and incriminating evidence surfaces on Tom's own computer and cell phone. Soon the FBI and police are investigating Tom for what appears to be a very disturbing and unprecedented series of crimes.
Someone is out to frame Tom--someone capable of destroying everything he loves without laying a finger on him. As he races to prove his innocence, he must unravel a tangle of lies about his family, the friends and colleagues he thought he knew, and about his past. For deep amid the secrets he's been keeping--from a troubled tour of duty to the reason for his ex-wife's death--is the truth that someone will gladly kill to protect. . .
"If Palmer's second thriller doesn't generate tingling spinal columns, then nothing will. Superbly crafted characters and catchy prose will keep readers turning the pages." Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Palmer's sophomore effort, following Delirious, is every bit as gripping as the first, maybe more so. Palmer scores with a terrific thriller that has it all." Library Journal (starred review)
"A gripping thriller." Booklist
"A well-written, well-plotted thriller. Don't miss this one!" RT Book Reviews
