Publisher's Summary

June Lyons, the former FBI agent turned small-town cop introduced in the acclaimed Ice Shear, must solve two connected cases whose roots stretch back decades in time - and dangerously touch the lives of those closest to her.
As a police officer in the Rust Belt town of Hopewell Falls, New York, June Lyons keeps an eye on the abandoned factories that line the Mohawk River. Spotting a slick of gasoline running across the parking lot of an old apparel factory, she quickly heads inside the building, where she discovers an unconscious woman too close to the flame. The fire destroys the building down to its subbasements, and the badly burned woman June rescued is in a coma. No one knows who she is or how she got there.
Thirty years ago June's father made a name for himself when he arrested the factory's owner, Bernie Lawler, for killing his wife and child, though their bodies were never found. Sifting through the factory's ruins, June and her partner, Dave Batko, discover a woman's body sealed in a barrel. Surely it's Luisa Lawler, and the case file can be closed. But the body isn't Bernie's wife - it's Dave's mother, a troubled party girl who disappeared when Dave was young.
As June and her neighbors discover, beneath Hopewell Falls' charming façade lie some unbearably ugly truths - secrets that are only beginning to surface. With the case growing more complex, she teams with FBI Special Agent Hale Bascom to find answers - before everyone she loves and the town itself spin dangerously out of control.

Terrific read; kept me guessing!

Great characters and the plot twists kept me guessing right to the very end!
Also, it was very well read by the narrator .

Struggled to even listen 10 minutes, the narration was irritating...such as, the reader says the individuals name every time when that person has a line. For example, (Michael) "What are you doing?" (Valerie) "I'm cleaning the gun". (Michael)...etc.
