|Summary, etc.:||"The day after Burning Lake's notorious, debauched Halloween celebration, Detective Natalie Lockhart uncovers a heartbreaking scene - a young woman, dead and lying in a dumpster. There's no clue to who she is, save for a mystifying tattoo on her arm, and a callus underneath her chin. She's not from around here. No one knows who she is. As Natalie retraces the young woman's steps leading up to her death, she uncovers even more horror - a string of murders and disappearances, seemingly unconnected, that may have ties to each other - and explain the abrupt disappearance of her best friend years ago. As Natalie digs deeper to find the killer, old hurts are renewed and dark secrets uncovered. But deep within the mind of the hunter is a darkness Natalie could never have imagined, and as she draws closer to the truth, the killer is weaving a trap for her that may prove unescapable."--Publisher's description.|

When readers last met Detective Natalie Lockhart (Trace of Evil, 2019), it was her sister's "deathaversary," and Natalie was still very much caught up with her sibling's demise and her mother's needs. In this second in the series, Natalie has moved on and matured but is still in her hometown of Burning Lake, where Halloween festivities are the event of the year. This year's post-Halloween cleanup reveals the body of a young woman in a dumpster, and finding out who she was, what happened, and who could be responsible brings to the fore issues surrounding parental wrongdoing, both of the overbearing stage-parent type and of the much more violent kind. References to events in the previous book will likely be confusing for readers who haven't read it, but, otherwise, this is an absorbing look at small-town politics and relationships set against the intrigue of a mysterious death. Jodi Picoult's fans will be an apt audience for Blanchard's chilling latest. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
