Publisher's Summary

Her family's cottage on the New Jersey shore was a place of freedom and innocence for Julie Bauer - until her 17-year-old sister, Isabel, was murdered. It's been more than 40 years since that August night, but Julie's memories of her sister's death still shape her world. Now someone from her past is raising questions about what really happened that night. About Julie's own complicity. About a devastating secret her mother kept from them all. About the person who went to prison for Izzy's murder - and the person who didn't. Faced with questions and armed with few answers, Julie must gather the courage to revisit her past and untangle the complex emotions that led to one unspeakable act of violence on the bay at midnight.


What the Critics Say

"The story of what really happened unfolds organically and credibly, building to a touching denouement that plumbs the nature of crimes of the heart." (Publishers Weekly)

He said, She said

The "he said, she said" of Julie's narrator would have been better left unsaid, very distracting! Once I stopped wincing, the book was enjoyable and the story intriguing.

- Marlene Mouchette "I commute to work four hours a day and Audible has made it bearable for me for the last year."


I'm not sure who read the part of Julie, but the way " he said" "I said" "she said" was recited in such a way that I wanted to PUNCH MYSELF IN MY FACE.
I'm not sure if I should blame the author or the reader, but it became so distracting that it affected my overall impression.
