Guilt is a powerful thing, and former deputy Jack Collins is mired in it. Unable to forget the events that have taken place in the town he was sworn to protect, he feels as if he is slowly drowning as he tries to cope with the aftermath of a serial killer’s reign of terror, as well as his new–and unwanted–job as chief of police.
When the body of a young woman, having the same puncture wounds as the serial killer’s previous victims, is discovered, Jack must determine if this is a copycat crime or the work of a possible accomplice–either of which–could put the killer’s only surviving victim in grave danger.
As Jack delves deeper into the murder, his vow to keep the victim safe, combined with the secret he’s been harboring, begins to take its toll. His sudden inability to confide in his wife, Cheryl, causes their home, which was once a haven for him, to become just another source of tension.
An overzealous news team, a threat from his not so distant past, and a mayor who wants the murder swept under the rug, only add to the pressure surrounding Jack as he struggles to do what’s right on all levels in this riveting, stand-alone sequel to The Monster of Silver Creek.

Belinda Buchanan was born in Owensboro, Kentucky in the U.S. She is the youngest daughter out of four, beating out her twin sister for that title by a scant two minutes. Growing up, her extreme shyness led to a lot of alone time, during which she began to write down the stories that swarmed inside her head. She met the love of her life on a blind date and has been married to him for twenty-six years. During this time they’ve lived in a few different states, but now reside in a small town in Kentucky which has been their home for nearly a decade. Besides being a wife, she is a mother to two boys – one who loves her unconditionally, and one who loves her only when not in public, and a caretaker to a menagerie of animals which includes a hamster, two persnickety cats, and one dog that thinks he’s a person. She is also a firm believer that Krazy Glue can fix anything.
