What Lies In Darkness
How many secrets can one family hide?
Late Christmas Eve, the Harper family’s car crashed on a desolate stretch outside Black Lake. Sixteen-year-old Alice was found injured by the side of the road—and alone. It was as if her parents and younger sister, Ella, had simply disappeared.
One year later, Alice still deals with nightmares and unanswered questions when she and her friends find something in the basement of an abandoned home: an unidentified body and Ella’s blood-stained backpack.
Detective Jess Lambert suspects the cases are linked. But as she investigates, she uncovers dark secrets that put her on a collision course with her own past. Jess’s only witness is haunted by her own ghosts—ghosts that might ultimately be connected to Jess. But the dead don’t give up their secrets easily. Neither do the living.
