Summary

A detective returns to her haunted past, with deadly consequences, in an icy novel of psychological suspense by the Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestselling author of Girls of Glass.

Detective Mia Hart never planned to return home. One terrifying summer night, Mia lost two of her closest friends to suicide. Scarred and broken, she fled St. Lucy’s, a small island off the coast of Maine.

Now fifteen years later, when the body of a journalist is fished out of the bay near St. Lucy’s cliffs, Mia is forced to help with the case - and face all she’s been running from. As she approaches the island, the wintery winds of Black Rock Bay usher Mia home again.

When Mia digs into the reporter’s death, she finds he left behind a written clue: It wasn't suicide. Mia soon discovers it’s her own tragic past he was referring to. Now, as she tries to untangle a web of lies, Mia realizes that solving this case means becoming the next pawn in someone’s blood-chilling game of truth or die.

to many characters

there are so many characters, there wasn't enough time learning about one then it moved to another, then it would go back and forth between first and last names. I just couldn't get connected with the main character until the end and even that was difficult to keep up with. it was a good storyline , it tried to keep you in suspense but it was bogged down by all the characters.

A little too dramatic for my taste

Good story . Well written with a bit too complex and dramatic in its plot.

Have to concentrate on this one.

Too many characters. Confusing. I think if I had zero interruptions, and listed the characters as they were introduced, I would have really enjoyed this book.

very boring

I made it to chapter 15 and absolutely nothing eventful happened. Probably one of the most boring books I've come across in a while.

Thriller mystery up to the end

This was a fast paced fantastic listen.

The characters were flawed making them seem realistic.

The plot is a cautionary tale that being young doesn’t mean you really KNOW everything.

Sarah Naughton did an excellent job with the storytelling!
