“R.J. Ellory's imagery and evocative style are the perfect vehicle for this murder mystery, set in the South during the 1940s. In a story that is full of surprises, the horrors of WWII stand alongside the horrific killings in a quiet Georgia town.”

Description

Just a teenager, Joseph becomes determined to protect his community from the killer, but he is powerless in preventing more murders-and no one is ever caught. Ten years later one of his neighbors is found hanging from a rope, surrounded by belongings of the dead girls; the killings cease, and the nightmare appears to be over. Desperate and plagued by everything he has witnessed, Joseph sets out to forge a new life in New York. But even there the past won't leave him alone-for it seems that the murderer still lives and is killing again, and that the secret to his identity lies in Joseph's own history.
