A hard, four-hour drive north of San Francisco leads to sparsely populated Soledad County, a combination of spectacular seashore, inland forests, and small towns steeped in gold-mining history. One of those towns is Cyanide Wells, now an artsy community, whose name comes from the miners’ use of cyanide to refine ore and the time the area’s water supply was tragically poisoned.

To Matthew Lindstrom, that sinister legacy is ironically appropriate for the place he finally expects to find his ex-wife, Gwen. Fourteen years earlier, her baffling disappearance branded him a murderer and destroyed his reputation and career as a photographer. Suddenly, after all this time, an anonymous phone caller tells him that Gwen is alive - and well aware of what she has done. Matt comes to Cyanide Wells looking for answers...and revenge.

Here, where the surrounding thick forest conceals twisted paths and old sins, Matt works to uncover the details of Gwen’s new life. But before he can confront her, his ex vanishes once more. With his future again threatened by suspicion, Matt must join forces with Carly McGuire - a local woman with secrets of her own - and begin a hunt through Soledad’s untamed landscape and an interior geography of betrayal and darkness. There perhaps lies the truth about past crimes and Gwen’s fate...as well as Matt’s own.

    " This book was passed down to me by my husbands grandmother, who recently passed away. It's a mystery and an interesting read. The book was rather short and I finished it in 2 days but I did enjoy it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rita | 9/18/2013

    " Not as exciting as I thought it was going to be. A good read though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosie | 8/4/2013

    " I've read this book twice and loved it each time. Helps that I'm from the area she writes about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 4/27/2013

    " I liked this book because it was complex and a good character study. It ended in a fairly realistic way. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 11/21/2012

    " This is a great thriller when you're looking for someone you disappeared and secrets surfaced years later. Recurring characters from Point Deception appear in it too. This is a fine one of Marcia Muller. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin Redmond | 11/19/2012

    " I listened to the abridged audio and it wasn't great. For a mystery, every detail counts and I am sure the book is much, much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ellie Mendez | 9/30/2012

    " It was a quick but enjoyable read. As you go down memory lane the life of a sociopath is revealed layer by layer. I found myself wondering about the guilt or innocence of the main suspect, the runaway wife. This is a great book and I read it so fast because I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 12/3/2011

    " A really great mystery that kept me guessing until the very end! The book concerns a man whose wife disappears right after she asks for a divorce. Everyone begins to look at him as a probable murderer when she never shows up again. I highly recommend to any mystery fan! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Polly | 11/2/2011

    " Mediocre. Did not finish. I have liked her previous mystery series but this was not well written or plotted. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn Rose | 9/24/2011

    " I almost put this down because it began with several pages of "talking heads," but I stuck with it and found it to be a pretty good mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 9/14/2011

    " Solid, believable mystery; I like the way it was told through two different perspectives. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Carter | 4/25/2011

    " A very quick read that I could not put down. I really liked the story line and the characters and hope there are more books in this series. "
