Pub. Date:
At the beginning of a dark autumn, a quiet suburban town is shaken when a headless body washes up next to its riverside train station. The shock is truly brought home when Lynn Schulman, who's just moved back to town with her family, learns that the victim is her lifelong best friend, Sandi Lanier. The illusion of security that this place has given Lynn since childhood begins to crumble - especially when the police investigator assigned to the case turns out to be her high school boyfriend, Michael Fallon, who stalked her after she broke off their relationship all those years ago.Michael has become a respected figure in town, but one thing hasn't changed: he's still obsessed with Lynn. He forces himself back into Lynn's life, showing up unannounced at her house, acting strangely, and fighting with her husband, Barry. Tensions boil over, friends turn against one another, old secrets are unearthed, and it becomes clear that Sandi's murder isn't an isolated case. Increasingly alone in a place they thought they knew, the Schulman's realize it's not just real estate values at risk here. It's their lives.
