This is my first book by Mariah Stewart. It was a good thriller with a few twists and turns. I will continue to read more from her. I am always happy to find a new go-to author, and I think Mariah Stewart could be one. ( )

Be patient with this book... Stewart takes her time setting up the main story, a rapist-murderer terrorizing the women on the Jersey shore, woven in with the story of a family massacred 26 years ago.

The only family member who was not killed back then, Cassie Burke, is now the detective trying to find the killer before he strangles more vacationers in this thriller set in a hot and brutal summer. Thankfully, Stewart gets much more organized in her writing and doesn't waste words as much in the later books in the TRUTH series. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345476654, Mass Market Paperback)

From New York Times bestselling author Mariah Stewart comes a novel of sexy romantic suspense for fans of Nora Roberts, Catherine Coulter, and Karen Robards.


Twenty-six years ago, even before a series of brutal murders rocked the idyllic town of Bowers Inlet, Cassie Burke lost her parents, her sister, and nearly her own life to a transient befriended by her father. Back then, Cassie was a scared kid–now she’s a homicide cop. Back then, the suspect was caught and convicted–he died in prison. But now the killing has started again. And all signs indicate that the Bayside Strangler has come back for more.

With too many victims and too few suspects, Cassie has her hands full investigating the case, while working through the old trauma it has brought to the surface. Luckily, FBI agent Rick Cisco is dispatched to lend support. Together, Cassie and Rick must uncover the link between the dark past and the dangerous present to bring this small town’s long nightmare to an end. If they fail, an elusive fiend will slip back into the shadows . . . to watch and wait–and kill another day.

In matters of crime, there are many versions of the truth.
