When her father dies, Tessa is pulled back to the small Pennsylvania town where her life came apart when her father was sent to prison, her mother went to pieces, and her beloved older sister ran away, and where her testimony and that of her now-estranged friend Callie sent a serial killer to death row--a serial killer who may be getting a new trial as long buried secrets come to light. Tessa left Fayette, Pennsylvania when she was nine. Cassie never left-- and if she parties hard enough maybe one day her demons will disappear. The childhood friends have never talked about what they saw that night. Now Tessa has come back to Fayette... to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row... to Lori Cawley, Callie's dead cousin... and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.
