Life to this point has been perpetually distressing for Casie Valentine. The unsolved murder of her mother and her relationship with an abusive man have left her heartbroken and discouraged.
After injuring and fleeing her lover one terrifying night, Casie believes that the future is now promising--where darkness had prevailed light will penetrate, and hopefully remain.
IT CAN ALWAYS CATCH UP WITH YOU . . .
But upon her arrival in Sarvelle Falls, Casie learns that the friend she was going to stay with has been viciously murdered.

While she tries to convince herself that her ex is responsible, circumstances are indicating something far more sinister.

Despite his frustration and contrary to his belief that the investigation is barely progressing, Rico is dangerously close to learning those answers . . . and wishing he hadn't.
