This thriller is NH resident Amy Ray's first novel. Kirkus Reviews said, "Ray takes her time establishing her characters, including the bad guys, and with a rousing, indelible payoff, it's well worth it."
"Denying the past proves deadly for BK Hartshaw and Trevor Mayhew in this gripping noir novel where nothing is as it seems.

BK and Trevor’s deeply buried secrets are about to catch up with them—and everyone they know and love. Who will pay the ultimate price for their dangerous denials?" -Publisher's blurb
