From the New York Times bestselling
author of Back Roads comes a fast-paced literary thriller about a
forensic psychologist forced to face his own demons after discovering his small
hometown terrorized by a serial killer.
Dr. Sheridan Doyle—a
fastidiously groomed and TV-friendly forensic psychologist—is the go-to shrink
for the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office whenever a twisted killer’s
mind eludes other experts. But beneath his Armani pinstripes, he’s still Danny
Doyle, the awkward, terrified, bullied boy from a blue-collar mining family,
plagued by panic attacks and haunted by the tragic death of his little sister
and mental unraveling of his mother years ago.
Returning to a hometown
grappling with its own ghosts, Danny finds a dead body at the infamous Lost
Creek gallows where a band of rebellious Irish miners was once executed.
Strangely, the body is connected to the wealthy family responsible for the
miners’ deaths. Teaming up with veteran detective Rafe, a father-like figure
from his youth, Danny—in pursuit of a killer—comes dangerously close to
startling truths about his family, his past, and himself.
In this masterfully told
psychological thriller in the vein of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl, the past
and present collide to put Lost Creek’s long-lived ghosts to bed. Download and start listening now!
