About the Book

En Savannah, ciudad sureña de hermosos edificios construidos en el periodo anterior a la guerra civil estadounidense, en la que abundan los parques pintorescos y las calles de adoquines, la vida transcurre sin ningún contratiempo. Pero para la reportera de sucesos Harper McCain, la belleza intemporal y los monumentos que adornan el patrimonio de su ciudad natal desaparecen cuando llega la noche, con su oscuridad y sus peligros. Pero no podría vivir en otra parte. Porque su amor por Savannah ni siquiera se ha visto nunca comprometido por el brutal asesinato de su madre, a la que halló muerta en su casa cuando tenía doce años.

Una mujer de unos treinta años hallada desnuda, cosida a puñaladas en el suelo de la cocina. Y quien la descubre es su hija de doce años cuando vuelve del colegio.

Harper McClain, una de las reporteras de Savannah con más prestigio en la investigación de casos de asesinato, se queda contemplando la terrible escena que tiene delante de sus ojos, y una idea le cruza la mente, como un grito en el silencio de la noche. Porque es un crimen idéntico al que ella presenció: el asesinato de su madre…

Lleva quince años destrozada por dentro, sabiendo que quien mató a su madre se pasea libre por las calles. Y ahora, al parecer, ha vuelto a matar. No hay huellas digitales, tampoco las hay de pasos; ni restos de ADN. Sin embargo, Harper está decidida a descubrir la verdad de una vez por todas.

Pero tendrá que pagar un precio por la búsqueda de la verdad, y no sabe si podrá llegar hasta ese punto…
