Gretchen claims to have inside knowledge about the grisly Mount Tabor Park murder and Archie can't risk losing his only lead in the case. At least, that's what he tells himself after he agrees to visit Gretchen But the ties between Archie and Gretchen have always been stronger, deeper, and more complex than he's willing to admit, even to himself. What game is Gretchen playing this time? And even more frightening, what long-hidden secrets from her past have been dredged up that someone would kill to protect?
