New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan’s suspenseful new mass market original about a college senior’s podcast that delves into an unsolved campus murder of a sorority girl three years earlier, as individual callers explode every fact previously thought to be true.

Lucas Vega is obsessed with the death of Candace Swain, who left a sorority party one night and never came back. Her body was found two weeks later, and the case has grown cold. Three years later while interning at the Medical Examiner’s, Lucas discovers new information, but the police are not interested.

Lucas knows he has several credible pieces of the puzzle, he just isn’t sure how they fit together. So he creates a podcast to revisit Candace’s last hours. He asks listeners to crowdsource what they remember and invites guest lecturer, former US Marshal Regan Merritt, to come on and share her expertise.

New tips come in that convince Lucas and Regan they are onto something. Then shockingly one of the podcast callers turns up dead. Another hints at Candace’s secret life…a much darker picture than Lucas imagined—and one that implicates other sorority sisters. Regan uses her own resources to bolster their theory and learns that Lucas is hiding his own dark secret. The pressure is to solve the murder, but first Lucas must come clean about his real motives in pursuing this podcast – before the killer silences him forever.


Lucas has created a podcast about a true crime that occurred on his college campus. He has lots of information about the murder of Candace Swain. And he knows someone out there is hiding something. He brings on former US Marshal Regan Merrit. These two hit a nerve and before long both are in danger…but, there are more secrets to be revealed…you must read this to find out.

Lucas is like a dog with a bone…he is obsessed. I loved his tenacity. You just know he is hiding something! Then there is Regan. She is one of my favorite characters. She has a past she is running from, well, more like trying to hide from. This case brings her back to life and her instincts kick in.

This is not my favorite Allison Brennan book. I enjoy her books but this one was a bit slow at the first. But, the further you get into the story you realize it is a slow build to a sensational ending you will not soon forget!

Need a book with a dramatic ending…THIS IS IT! Grab your copy today!
