Samantha’s life is good, mostly. She loves her father deeply, but even daddy’s little girl finds the life of a military brat trying. Despite being the “new girl” too often, she soldiers on. Her mom could not. She lived for his life, but now wants one of her own. Helpless but to stand witness to their marriage crumble, Samantha’s life is once again packed up and shipped off, this time without her dad.
She now resides in the remote and seemingly desolate town of Columbus Cove. Saving her from the debilitating isolation was the cove’s latest resident, Channing Ashford. It is as if he had stepped off the cover of a romance novel and into the sleepy little town. He is charming and handsome and soon enough becomes Samantha’s sole focus. The now reformed drifter re-energizes her and they find sanctuary with each other.
When a shocking murder claims more than one victim, the couple is blindsided. They find themselves embroiled in an investigation that threatens their newly found happiness. All their reserves of sanctuary are spent as the secrets that lay buried beneath the unpaved roads of Columbus Cove come to light.
As with any murder, there is more than one victim. Secrets rarely stay buried for long.
Sheriff Martin Shuller was good at his job. He had a reputation of being a very thorough and very honest investigator. It had not surprised anyone when he was tapped to help with an investigation in a small neighboring town with a shocking high profile murder. Shuller, willing to help the quaint cove, readily accepted the challenge. Leaving his town in the safe hands of his deputy, Shuller traveled to Columbus Cove and worked the Steven Harrigan murder investigation. With the dramatic end to that case now behind him, Shuller returned to his seemingly normal and quiet town of Huntersville. He was glad to be back, despite only being gone for the brief time. A weight had lifted once he returned to his town, his routines, his life. He felt all the previous stress leave him as soon as he crossed back into his town’s outer limits.
Not long after returning home to his life and routine, Shuller is unexpectedly drawn into the case and discovers that things he thought he knew may not have been what they seemed to be. Shuller tries to come to grips with the revelations as they are discovered and those close to him worry for the embattled sheriff. As with most murders, there is more than just a single victim. Shuller had never thought that what had occurred in that house on Cedar Mill Lane would have uprooted what he thought he knew.
Quiet and normal was what he was seeking. It certainly was not what he found. When the past comes calling…
It surprised no one when Sarah and Jack married right out of high school; not because Sarah was pregnant at 19, but because they had been inseparable since sophomore year. Sarah gave birth to twins, Mark and Julie, and a year later, Jacob. They settled in upstate New York, Jack a business manager and Sarah a Real Estate agent. They had the ‘mom and apple pie’ life.
Their picturesque dream life turned into a nightmare when on a warm summer’s day at the local park, the penny dropped. What would forever be referred to as The Incident changed their family forever.
Four years later, they welcomed Christian into their home. The foster child turned adopted son never understood why Sarah was overprotective, but dutifully obeyed all her restrictive rules. When he started acting out, the couple were desperate to find out the cause of their son’s bizarre behavior. However, when Christian tells them about his friend they realize just why they are suffering at the hands of their son.
When it comes to family, it’s the ties that bind…
Jeff thought little of the change of management at work. To him it was just a new set of people coming in to run things. It was not as if his job changed at all, no one’s did. It was business as usual. It was not until another co-worker pointed out a strange occurrence since the new management took over – people had started to go missing. Jeff chalked it up to people unhappy with the change and quitting, but when his friend is the next to ‘up and quit’, never heard from again, Jeff starts to believe there is more going on than mere disgruntled employees.
Demanding to know what happened to his friend, Jeff tries to meet with the new leadership, only to get a chilly reception. He is denied repeatedly for a request to meet with his HR rep. Why can’t he talk to management? Why are they so distant? Just what is happening behind the door of Room 423?

With little to go on, the homicide division detectives found themselves bombarded with a string of randomly odd and unconnected murder cases. On the surface they were unconnected, that is until an Indie Author’s draft manuscript is anonymously delivered to the department. It eerily describes each murder, divulging unreleased details, with auspiciously noting more murders to come. The unsolved murders change from a series of random crimes to that of a trail left by a serial killer.
The lead detective seemingly finds himself armed with the murderer’s morbid playbook. The investigation then shifts focus to the author who just landed the big-time agent and a lucrative book deal, bound and determined to find out just how this unknown writer conducted his research.
