Book Description:
When seventeen-year-old Katherine McCall awakened one morning to find her beloved sister, Sara, brutally murdered, her whole life changed in the blink of an eye. Kat was named the prime suspect and, on a string of circumstantial evidence, charged and tried. While the jury found her innocent, not everyone else agreed, and her only choice was to go into hiding. But she carried a dark secret with her, one that made her worry she might actually have had something to do with Sara’s death . . .

Now, years later, Kat is still haunted by her sister’s unsolved murder and continues to receive chilling anonymous letters, but she has tried to move on with her life. Until, on the tenth anniversary of Sara’s death, she receives a letter that makes the past impossible to ignore: "What about justice for Sara?" What about justice for Sara? And for herself? Kat realizes that going back to Liberty, Louisiana, might be the only way to move forward and find some peace. And there’s a killer out there who was never caught.

But the town she’s come back to is hardly different from the one she left. The secrets and suspicions still run deep. Kat has an ally in Detective Luke Tanner, son of the former Liberty police chief, but he may be her only one. With plenty of enemies, no one to trust and a killer determined to keep a dark secret buried, Kat must decide if justice is worth fighting—and dying—for.

Bestselling author Erica Spindler returns with a chilling new suspense novel about a woman who goes home ten years after her sister's murder to find the true killer.

Idgie Says:
Kat was blamed for her sister's death 10 years ago and spent a year in jail - from age 17 to 18 - until she was acquitted, but the town never believed she was innocent.  She was a hell-raiser of a teen who openly yelled that she wished her sister dead.

Then 2 days later she wakes up and finds her sister bludgeoned to death in their living room.  

After the acquittal she heads off on her own - easy enough as she also happens to be a very rich young woman. 

10 years later, after being stalked and tormented by hostile letters wherever she lives she comes back to face the demons, whoever they are.  Many, many twists, turns and backstabbers pop up in the search to find the real killer.

A little love story with a hot cop doesn't hurt the story either!
