Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "This is story of three best friends: one who was murdered, one who went to prison, and one who's been searching for the truth all these years . . . When she was sixteen years old, Angela Wong--one of the most popular girls in school--disappeared without a trace. Nobody ever suspected that her best friend, Georgina Shaw, now an executive and rising star at her Seattle pharmaceutical company, was involved in any way. Certainly not Kaiser Brody, who was close with both girls back in high school. But fourteen years later, Angela Wong's remains are discovered in the woods near Geo's childhood home. And Kaiser--now a detective with Seattle PD--finally learns the truth: Angela was a victim of Calvin James. The same Calvin James who murdered at least three other women. To the authorities, Calvin is a serial killer. But to Geo, he's something else entirely. Back in high school, Calvin was Geo's first love. Turbulent and often volatile, their relationship bordered on obsession from the moment they met right up until the night Angela was killed. For fourteen years, Geo knew what happened to Angela and told no one. For fourteen years, she carried the secret of Angela's death until Geo was arrested and sent to prison. While everyone thinks they finally know the truth, there are dark secrets buried deep. And what happened that fateful night is more complex and more chilling than anyone really knows. Now the obsessive past catches up with the deadly present when new bodies begin to turn up, killed in the exact same manner as Angela Wong. How far will someone go to bury her secrets and hide her grief? How long can you get away with a lie? How long can you live with it?"-- Provided by publisher.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2018 May #1
    There is a dynamite thriller-horror plot pulsing through these pages, but it's forced to share time with a less compelling coming-of-age drama. Georgina "Geo" Shaw, a Seattle high-school student, always the sidekick to her bestie Angela Wong, finally one-ups her friend by catching the eye of hunky, dangerous dropout Calvin James. We know from the novel's opening—set in a courtroom 14 years after the drunken night when Angela disappeared—that something went very bad indeed after Calvin slouched into the high-schoolers' lives. Now known as the Sweetbay Strangler, Calvin is on trial for murder, and Geo's testimony may implicate her as well. Moving back and forward in time, Hillier parcels out, ever so slowly, the gory details of what took place on that life-changing night, building tension as the bodies start piling up in the present. Though slowed by backstory-establishing flashbacks to Geo and Angela's frenemy relationship in high school (and the role of third-wheel, cop-to-be Kaiser), the novel really takes off when Hillier gets down to the grisly stuff. When wielding sharp—or, even worse, slightly dull—objects, Hillier has a Chelsea Cain–like ability to horrify her readers in a way that feels agonizingly real. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
