The haunting new thriller from Alex North, author of the New York Times
bestseller The Whisper Man You knew a teenager like Charlie Crabtree. A
dark imagination, a sinister smile--always on the outside of the group.
Some part of you suspected he might be capable of doing something awful.
Twenty-five years ago, Crabtree did just that, committing a murder so
shocking that it’s attracted that strange kind of infamy that only exists
on the darkest corners of the internet--and inspired more than one copycat.
Paul Adams remembers the case all too well: Crabtree--and his victim--were
Paul’s friends. Paul has slowly put his life back together. But now his
mother, old and senile, has taken a turn for the worse. Though every inch
of him resists, it is time to come home. It's not long before things start
to go wrong. Reading the news, Paul learns another copycat has struck. His
mother is distressed, insistent that there's something in the house. And
someone is following him. Which reminds him of the most unsettling thing
about that awful day twenty-five years ago. It wasn't just the murder. It
was the fact that afterward, Charlie Crabtree was never seen again...
