• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

“All small towns are alike in one way; they keep their unhappiness locked away from prying eyes of outsiders. It is possible for any stranger to visit a tourist spot or a resort and enjoy the sunshine and ice cream, but scratch just beneath the surface and the darker things crawl and multiply.”
It’s 1998 and James Bridge has returned to his hometown twenty years after the apparent murder and disappearance of his childhood friend. However, Bridge soon finds himself an outsider in a community he once regarded as his own, forced to confront his past and that of his former friends as the killings begin again.
