Summary
"When private investigator Cal Weaver looks into a break-in at the home of a recently deceased man, he uncovers far more than he is prepared for after he finds a hidden room in the basement. All evidence points to the room being used for salacious activity. Perhaps something illegal. He also finds that a cache of DVDs has been stolen from the room and soon realizes it may not be discs the thief was actually interested in. But there is something even darker than thievery in town. Detective Barry Duckworth is doggedly trying to solve two murders, one of which is three years old. He believes the killings are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound. And the key to his mystery may lie with Cal Weaver's own labyrinthine case. As the lies begin to unravel, and another murder happens, Cal and Barry find themselves headed straight into the heart of a dark secret as they uncover more startling truths about Promise Falls. Evil deeds long thought buried are about to haunt the residents of this town as the sins of the past and present collide with terrifying results"--
