New York Times Bestselling Author

In this fine departure from his popular mystery series, Matt Goldman offers readers a luscious visit to Beaufort, South Carolina, and a mysterious visit to the past. Drawn back to his family’s home in the south, Joey Green is enchanted by both his childhood memories of the area and a new relationship with a woman he meets there. But the murder of a wealthy neighbor dredges up skeletons from the past that many in Beaufort would prefer stay hidden. Goldman has an unerring ear for snappy dialogue and a poet’s eye for the beauty of nature. This is a compelling story of how the past is never truly the past, and how we make sense of the gifts that are offered us in every present moment. I loved this book. - William Kent Krueger
