The envelope delivered to Shelby Cole’s Seattle home contains no return address, just a photograph of a little girl. Shelby knows at once that this is the daughter she was told died at birth, and in that moment, Shelby knows something else: she needs to go back to Bad Luck, Texas.
She’s not the only one coming home. A long-ago killing is in the news again following recanted testimony. A violent nightmare from Shelby’s past has been set free, and she can’t shake a suspicion that someone is baiting her, luring her back here for their own ends.
Shelby’s search for answers is met with stonewalling and hostility. Her only ally is a figure from her past—someone she has every reason not to trust. In the midst of dark family revelations she uncovers a terrifying scheme of revenge…and some secrets, once spoken, can never be forgotten—or forgiven.
