Alex Owens knows very little about her childhood or who she really is - her only family an absent, emotionally fragile mother. Alex has always felt something was missing and has spent most of her life searching for what that could be. When an infant's remains are unearthed, Alex realises she has a connection to the case. Suddenly long-lost memories start flooding in, leading her back to a small town in California and to dark and terrifying nightmares that haunt her every waking moment.
Greeted with silence and suspicion, Alex is determined to get to the heart of a secret no one wants to see uncovered. As violent deaths and a series of pagan rituals terrify the tightly-knit community, Alex is forced to confront the terrible truth about a single night that changed her family's lives forever.

I would definitely read this again. I haven't enjoyed a story like this for quite some time!
Gripping, mysterious, twisting.... absolutely great!
Alex was a very interesting character
Had to be Alex. Beautifully represented
Yes, I had to find things to do in which I could carry on listening!
Best for a while.... Loved it :)
I would certainly recommend this novel - it is gripping and keeps you on the edge of your seat! I bought this in a buy one get one free audible promotion and I am very glad that I did!
It was the way that the characters developed!
Her voices and characterization is very entertaining.
I liked the feeling of excitement that this book gave me and the resolution was unexpected and very enjoyable.
Give it a go its a really good listen!
The story is fast-paced and suspenseful, but the characters, including the protagonist, are a bit one-dimensional and some of the plot twists are not very credible.
The most interesting thing is the murder mystery at the centre of the story, the least interesting to me was the love story.
None of the characters really stood out to me.
was put off by the American accent (I know that sounds daft with it being set in America) but easy to listen to if slightly predictable
yes but not my first choice
