Summary

Jack Haldean’s newly-wedded bliss is disrupted by a series of shocking revelations in this gripping historical mystery.

When an old schoolfriend of Jack’s wife Betty witnesses a disturbing vision in the garden of a smart suburban house, Jack is intrigued. Just what did Jenny Langton see beneath the cedar tree at Saunder’s Green that frightened her so much she fainted on the spot?

Jack’s subsequent enquiries stir up a hornet’s nest of repressed emotions and long-buried secrets. What exactly happened at Saunder’s Green almost twenty years before – and why will no one talk about it? As he unearths evidence of a possible murder, how is even a seasoned investigator like Jack supposed to solve a crime that took place two decades before with no tangible clues, no reliable witnesses – and at least one person who is determined to stop him discovering the truth … whatever it takes.

    Drinking and driving may be deadly in more ways than one... 
     
    When a woman's disappearance ticks off all the same boxes as two unsolved murders, Miami homicide detective Kelly Marsh is convinced there's about to be a third. If she's right and the killer sticks to their previous MO, she only has three days before Jenna Kelter's decapitated head will show up somewhere in the city. With no time to waste, Kelly reaches out to the one person she knows can help: her former mentor and family friend Jack Harper, who just happens to lead a team with the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit. 
     
    BAU special agent and profiler Brandon Fisher easily sees the similarities between Detective Marsh's missing person case and the two cold cases: all three victims served time for DUI vehicular homicide and disappeared three days after being released from prison. But is that enough to assume Kelter has been abducted by a serial killer? Brandon's not so sure and fears his boss may have let his personal connection to Marsh cloud his judgment. Surely there isn't any other explanation for why they jumped into an investigation less than twenty-four hours after Kelter was reported missing. Then again, maybe Brandon is letting his own differences with the detective affect his perspective. He'll need to move past it, though—and quickly. 
     
    After all, this killer has evaded capture for the past six years, and they may be looking at a lot more victims than originally suspected. This serial killer is calling the shots and pulling them into a macabre game of cat and mouse. While the team has no choice but to play, if they don't make the right moves, one of them may not make it out of Miami alive.
