Publisher Description

When three children stumble on a shallow grave in 1984, an idyllic California community is rocked to its core. The victim is a young woman, her eyes and lips sealed closed, a blind and silent witness to an unspeakable crime. The third victim in two years’ time, it’s clear that a serial killer has come calling.  

As a member of the FBI’s fledgling criminal profiling unit, Special Agent Tony Mendez knows serial killers. It quickly becomes apparent that the See-No-Evil killer is no ordinary psychopath. The profile paints a portrait of a man easily trusted, well respected, and intelligent—a man no one would suspect.

Dr. Peter Crane fits the bill. A pillar of the community, he volunteers at a center for disadvantaged women—a center the victims had all attended. Crane is also a beloved husband and father to a ten-year-old son, Tommy, who was one of the three children to discover the grave. Needing insight into Peter Crane’s world, Mendez asks Anne Navarre, Tommy’s fifth-grade teacher, to find out what she can. It’s a request Anne finds both intriguing and unethical—much like Mendez himself.

Then a new victim leads to a different suspect—a man whose son was another of the three children to find the grave but a man whose position in the community is also above reproach, a sheriff’s deputy. As the connections between the two families become increasingly tangled, it seems clear that one of these children holds the key to a serial killer’s double life . . . and a revelation of evil so dark, so deep, no one may survive.

    " The conceit of setting the story in 1985 didn't distract from the twisty plot at all. Hardly great literature, but cracking good page turner. Didn't have it figured out until the last page. "

    " 4.5 STARSThis was a creep-tastic book! This story sets up multiple serial killer possibilities right from the start and leaves you wondering up until the shocking ending. "

    " It's been a long time since I've read a murder/mystery or one of Hoag's books. It had me guessing right up to the end. It was a strange read because she set it in 1985 and the commentary about the lack of technology is an interesting through-line. "

    " This book was sooooo disturbing on so many levels. I couldnt sleep one night after getting to the really suspenseful part. Excellent story. It was cast in the 80s so it was fun to have all the 80s references in it. It also reminds me of how far we have come technologically since then as well. "
