NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER nbsp; Troy Turner and Rand Duchay were barely teenagers when they murdered a younger child. While Troy died violently behind bars, the hulking, slow-witted Rand managed to survive his stretch. Now, at age twenty-one, he's emerged a haunted, rootless man with a pressing need: to talk--once again--with psychologist Alex Delaware. But when Rand's life comes to a brutal end, his words die with him. nbsp; LAPD homicide detective Milo Sturgis suspects that either karma or revenge caught up with Rand, but Delaware's suspicions run darker. As Delaware and Sturgis retrace their steps through a grisly murder case that devastated a community, they discover madness, suicide, and even uglier truths waiting to be unearthed. And the nearer they come to understanding an unspeakable crime, the more harrowingly close they get to unmasking a monster hiding in plain sight.
