A heart-pounding, page-turning story…
MacFarlane transports the reader to a world steeped in mystery and intrigue as nineteen-year-old Joe struggles to prove himself innocent of his teen sweetheart’s murder. When Joe was released from juvie, all of his friends shunned him except for the lovely Mary who stood like a rock with him. But now Mary is dead, and Joe is behind bars, waiting for the trial for Mary’s murder. What lies in store for Joe who has done nothing but destroy his life until now? Macfarlane’s writing is fluid, drawing the reader further and further into Joe’s world. Equal parts intriguing and suspenseful, the plot unfolds gradually, with constant tension at the back, merging real-life trivialities with supernatural elements. McFarlane vividly brings his characters to life while conveying the underlying themes of love, teenage drama, fear, trauma, grief, family, and the real transformation of the human heart with utter conviction and thoughtfulness. A clever, smart, and utterly engrossing novel that fans of sophisticated crime fiction won’t want to miss.
