New York Times bestselling author Stuart Woods has created a haunting thriller full of ghostly images, murder, and old family secrets.

Situated on a peaceful lake in the prettiest part of the north Georgia mountains, Sutherland seems like a nice town, warm and quiet, the kind of place where families know their neighbors and children can grow up safe. But this picture-perfect hamlet harbors a dark evil—whispered rumors of greed, incest, and savagery. Buried deep within the lake’s waters are hideous secrets, unspeakable horrors that can turn hair white and drive a person mad: wicked lies that can kill.

Now, one unknowing outsider has the power to reveal the terrifying truth—if he lives.

Part detective story, part ghost story, part Southern gothic—this absorbing novel will fascinate listeners as a small town’s present, past, and future converge.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 JoDee | 1/20/2014

    " Enjoyable. I have read several Stuart Wood books. They don't keep you on the edge of your seat, but they do keep you interested and awaiting conclusion. This was not scary, just a mild haunting that spured the protagonist into solving the puzzle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 12/8/2013

    " A pretty good murder mystery. The main charactor drinks to much and isn't all that likeable, but the story keeps the book moving along. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana Moore | 12/3/2013

    " Excellent thriller. Really like Woods books that span multiple generations. Story was written so that ending was not clear until nearly the end. Some supernatural aspects but lightly done. Passed on to a friend who also enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 12/2/2013

    " I used to like Stuart Woods so picked this up at the Y. The book flowed at the beginning but by the time I got to the end, I just wanted it to end so I could get on to my next read. It was okay---I wouldn't highly recommend it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joyce | 11/29/2013

    " This was the only book of Stuart Woods that I really didn't like. It wasn't his usual type of writing and had too much fantasy which I don't enjoy reading. I've read every one of his other books and loved them! "

    " Stephen kong said this book scared the living hell out of him. All I can think I'd that either heirs or he had just a smidgen of living hell in him to scare out. It wasn't scary. It was an okay read and didn't drag much though. "

    " A departure from his normal story line. It wasn't as scary as the Stephen King blurb made it sound which was why I didn't read it at night. Fast paced, but intriguing. "
