Summary

From New York Times bestselling author Gilly Macmillan comes this original, chilling and twisty mystery about two shocking murder cases twenty years apart, and the threads that bind them.

Twenty years ago, eleven-year-olds Charlie Paige and Scott Ashby were murdered in the city of Bristol, their bodies dumped near a dog racing track. A man was convicted of the brutal crime, but decades later, questions still linger.

For his whole life, filmmaker Cody Swift has been haunted by the deaths of his childhood best friends. The loose ends of the police investigation consume him so much that he decides to return to Bristol in search of answers. Hoping to uncover new evidence, and to encourage those who may be keeping long-buried secrets to speak up, Cody starts a podcast to record his findings. But there are many people who don't want the case--along with old wounds--reopened so many years after the tragedy, especially Charlie's mother, Jess, who decides to take matters into her own hands.

When a long-dead body is found in the same location the boys were left decades before, the disturbing discovery launches another murder investigation. Now Detective John Fletcher, the investigator on the original case, must reopen his dusty files and decide if the two murders are linked. With his career at risk, the clock is ticking and lives are in jeopardy...

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "John Fletcher was new to the Bristol, England, police force when young Charlie Paige died his arms, and he's never forgotten it. Now a seasoned detective, Fletcher is shaken all over again when a body is found close to the site where Charlie and his friend Scott Ashby were assaulted and left for dead. As though the new killing wasn't enough, the dead boys' childhood friend starts a true-crime podcast that questions whether a mentally disabled man convicted of the murders was actually guilty. Fletcher's down-to-earth policing, combined with his strong sleuthing smarts, creates a compelling flashback-and-present-day mystery, but equally engaging is a secondary character, Charlie's mother, Jess. She wasn't there for her son, but her self-recrimination and eventual redemption over the course of the case make for compelling drama. Fans of British mysteries or of cold-case procedurals are the natural audience for this strongly written outing by the author of What She Knew (2016), but it may also appeal to devotees of the many true-crime podcasts out there today, including West Cork.--Henrietta Verma Copyright 2018 Booklist"
