Ties That Bind
"In her acclaimed thrillers, Natalie R. Collins reveals the secrets that lurk in every town, the darkness that lies in every heart, and the ties that bind every family--till death..."
The first victim is found hanging from a tree in her backyard. A popular cheerleader in the small town of Kanesville, Utah, she appears to have committed suicide. As does the next girl...Then comes a third death, and a growing suspicion that these are not suicides at all. Police Detective Samantha Montgomery has seen her share of tragedy back in Salt Lake City--but this is different. This is methodical, planned, perfectly executed. This is the work of a serial killer.
Visiting Detective Gage Flint knows Sam from her Salt Lake City days. After a brutal case left her traumatized--and Gage broke her heart--Sam decided to return to her hometown, never thinking she'd have another chance to work with Gage...or that another case would hit so close to home. The deeper she digs into the murders, the more she uncovers about her own family's past. Somehow, the two seem connected--and Sam could be the next target of a killer's obsession...
