Brutal murders on successive nights have shocked the small town of Drayton. In their aftermath two young women are dead, two anguished families will confront a shattering loss, and residents must face the possibility that a serial killer lives among them.

To Brianna Cooper, a reporter for the Drayton Courier, even such horrific crimes would ordinarily mean little more than an assignment; but because the first victim was a friend, Brianna feels a greater personal involvement.

Unfortunately, Brianna’s reputation as a journalist is spotty at best: she cuts corners when it suits her, and at least once has embarrassed herself and the Courier with a nonchalant approach and an indifferent attitude, both of which resulted in a spurious report. Brianna believes she can do better—can gather facts and verify sources, seek the truth and report it, play her role with a new independence. She doesn’t realize that simply doing her job may well bring consequences she could never have anticipated, and that seeking the absolute truth can present its own dangers.
