Some secrets are worth dying for.

For months, Doctor Rowan Dupont has been staring death in the face. It followed her back to her hometown of Winchester, Tennessee, ten months ago, cloaking the walls of her family’s Victorian funeral home like a shroud. In investigating the mysterious deaths of her loved ones, Rowan has unearthed enough family secrets to bury everything she’d previously thought true. But each shocking discovery has only led to more bodies and more questions; the rabbit hole is deeper than she ever imagined.

Despite settling in to a comfortable life with Police Chief Billy Brannigan, Rowan knows dangerous serial killer Julian Addington is still out there. She can’t let her guard down now. Not when she’s this close to ending his torment once and for all. But with a storm brewing on the horizon, she’ll get only one shot before the impending darkness takes hold, threatening to wipe away every truth she’s uncovered—and everything she holds dear.


As Rowan delves into her past and finally tries to move forward with her present she knows she can't let her guard down.  Rowan is discovering things about her mother that she isn't sure she understands.  The mystery of who Julian is and why he is obsessed with Rowan and why he was obsessed with her mother also becomes clear.  She knows in order to stop him she has to understand more about him.  But this doesn't alleviate her fears, the thought that she is putting her friends and her newly evolved relationship with Billy in jeopardy.  Julian will destroy everyone and everything she loves until she stops him.  

The truths that are uncovered in this book I didn't see coming but make so much more sense as to why this is all happening.  But even if she can stop Julian will this truly be the end? There are more characters that you get to know in this strange little town and more people that could be put in jeopardy. 

I truly love this series and I hope this won't be the last time we see Rowan and Billy.
