Twenty-three years ago, in the isolated coastal town of Virtue Falls, Washington, four-year-old Elizabeth Banner witnessed her mother’s brutal murder. Elizabeth’s father was convicted of killing Misty and was sentenced to prison. Elizabeth was sent to live with relatives and grew from a solitary child into a beautiful woman with a cool scientific mind—and an instinctive distrust of love.
Now Elizabeth is back in Virtue Falls. A geologist like her father, she lives cautiously; her life guided by logic and facts. But nothing can help her through the emotional chaos that follows the return of her ex-husband, Garik Jacobsen, an FBI agent on probation and tortured by the guilt of his past deeds. Nor can it help her deal with her father, now stricken with Alzheimer’s and haunted by Misty’s ghost.
When a massive earthquake reveals long-concealed secrets, Elizabeth soon discovers her father is innocent. Is the killer still at large, stalking ever closer to the one witness of Misty’s murder? Elizabeth and Garik investigate, stirring old, dark, and deadly resentments that could provoke another bloody murder—Elizabeth’s own. Download and start listening now!
