This is book number 2 in the Ray Elkins Thrillers series.
It's a tranquil October morning in northwest lower Michigan, a rural paradise of cherry orchards, blue lakes, and sandy shorelines. The serenity of the day-- and the season--shatters when an elderly woman walking her dogs along the beach stumbles upon the bodies of a brutally murdered couple.
Sheriff Ray Elkins returns from his debut in Summer People to track down the elusive killer of a vivacious and spirited young teacher. His search takes him into the dark side of an elite private school--and into his own long-forgotten past. As Elkins unravels the mystery, the hunter becomes the hunted and one intrigue leads to another in this page-turner you won't want to miss.
