The cover of the first book


Five years ago, high school senior Helena Kelly disappeared from her backyard in Dexby, Connecticut, never to be heard from again. Her family was left without answers–without any idea who killed Helena, or why.

Eighteen-year-old Seneca Frazier wants to change that. After connecting with Maddox Wright , his friend Brett , and Helena’s sister, Aerin Kelly , on a message board dedicated to solving cold cases, she just might succeed where the police have failed. But Seneca is hiding some dark secrets of her own–secrets that could get in the way of the investigation.

And somewhere nearby, the killer is watching…ready to do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried.
