Easy read, enjoyable and your typical murder mystery. ( )

A daughter estranged from her rapist/murderer dad is plunged into absolving his guilt 16 years later in this absorbing read. Stewart is good at putting you in the scene with meticulous descriptions of the characters' actions, almost too meticulous at times, still, her deft plotting keeps you from being drowned under by the details. Unlike the crimes would suggest, this is not a thriller that would leave you chilled, probably due to the warm relationships the protagonist has with her allies. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0345476697, 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.


Murder didn’t end Nina Madden’s life–it destroyed it. When her father was charged with the serial killings of several college students, Nina and her mother became pariahs in their small Maryland town. Though Nina never believed the hideous accusations, evidence led to her father’s conviction and guaranteed the death penalty. After the execution, Nina left Stone River to escape the hatred and persecution . . . but she couldn’t shake the lingering doubts.

More than twenty years later, those doubts are stirred to grim life. A new series of murders is plaguing Stone River: a killing spree that bears a striking resemblance to the one that sent Nina’s father to the death chamber. And Nina isn’ t the only one disturbed enough by the gruesome events to take notice. Wes Powell, the cop who pursued the original case, can’t ignore the eerie similarities between the crimes . . . nor their harrowing implications. Drawn back into a mystery that refuses to die, Nina and Wes will cross paths on their dangerous quest–and find themselves in the crosshairs of a bloodthirsty predator.

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