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.

    San Diego Union

    Denver Post

  • “Riveting storytelling and genuine emotional punch…excellent.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Triumphantly fulfilling the promise of her bestselling debut, O'Dell examines the tangled, enduring bonds of family and community in a Pennsylvania mining town…[a] searing, tragic vision of working-class people…Powerful and uncompromising, yet radiant with love, this one's pretty close to a masterpiece.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “An evocative novel about murder and intrigue in a small mining town in which secrets and lies from the past threaten to destroy the very fabric of the community. Compulsively readable.”

    Christina Baker Kline, author of Orphan Train

  • “Narrators Nick Podehl and Amy McFadden have a variety of voices to conquer as the town’s native son checks up on his elderly grandfather, spends time with a gruff but kindly police chief, and meets other townsfolk, several of whom are later killed. While Podehl does an admirable job with Doyle’s voice, it’s the supporting characters (a mean father, disturbed mother, effeminate dog owner) for whom he creates the best identities. McFadden portrays a visitor whose contemptuous attitude comes through vividly as she struts around in her Manolo Blahniks. Doyle must find himself and solve a crime steeped in the town’s past as the narrating duo’s array of voices guides the story.”
