When Grace Lee storms into the Dark Falls Police Department, heads turn. But she only has eyes for Detective Nate Ryder—the officer who closed her brother Jimmy’s case too quickly, declaring his death a suicide rather than a murder. As a forensic scientist, Grace thinks the signs are obvious, the trick is convincing Nate.
Dark Falls, Colorado
Firefighter Risa Caldwell decides one day to change her path on her morning jog through the woods. It may be the biggest mistake she’s ever made. When she falls and twists her ankle, she curses, until she sees she’s not stumbled over a tree root but a dead body. The body is that of local missing child Kaylee Shulte, and even to Risa’s untrained eye, the scene speaks of ritual and the work of a serial killer.
