Nothing hurts like the truth.

Doctor Rowan Dupont knows a serial killer is coming for her. Julian Addington has been waiting. Watching. And it’s only a matter of time before he strikes. But what Julian doesn’t know is that Rowan is ready for him. And more than anything she wants answers. How well did the depraved killer actually know her mother? And how many lies have been spun in the years since she took her own life?

Working alongside her childhood friend Police Chief Billy Brannigan, Rowan is determined to get to the bottom of her mother’s puzzling suicide once and for all—even if it means exposing an unsettling past. It certainly seems like her family’s Victorian funeral home has borne witness to more than one dark secret, but when a recent double homicide leads to an even grislier discovery, separating the truth from the lies might be the last thing Rowan does.


More bodies pile up as Rowan tries to get back to a "normal" life running the funeral home that has been in her family for generations.  Haunted by her mothers suicide, the death of her twin sister and her fathers murder at the hands of someone she thought she could trust Rowan's self esteem is waning.  She is struggling to believe she deserves a "normal" life.  With her best friend and long time crush Billy, the police chief, by her side Rowan is determined to discover the meaning behind several bodies with matching tattoos and her mothers name tattooed on their back.  But the body count keeps rising and Rowan knows that it will all come down to her and Julian. The most prolific serial killer she has ever encountered and one that she thought was her friend.  She confided in him, and trusted him only to be betrayed in the worst way.  More than her death Rowan is worried about those around her she cares about.  

I love this series.  However you definitely want to read them in order.  If you don't things will just not make sense.  Each book brings more questions and more intrigue.  The stakes are high and I can't put these down until I find out what happens.
