Beaufort, South Carolina is home to the Smallwoods, a family closely knit but fiercely at odds. Georgie, the youngest, is tormented by worry for her son, who vanished two years earlier, and by her anger at her father. An unforgiving patriarch and ex-Marine, Georgie's father neglects her mother, belittles her brother Ashby, and denies her sister Claire the financial support she needs after a trying divorce. When their mother dies suddenly and Georgie's son returns home on the same day, tensions rise between the siblings, and Georgie begins to suspect their father had a role in both their mother's death and her son's disappearance.More

"[Hightower's] pacing is brisk, her characters well drawn and credibly flawed, and her plotting diabolically intriguing from start to finish." (Publishers Weekly)
