"Detective Leah Teal is privy to most of the secrets in her hometown of Alvin, but there are always surprises to be had. Like the day she agrees to take her daughter Caroline to see a psychic for a reading. The psychic hones in on Leah instead, hinting at a string of gruesome killings and insisting that she intervene to prevent more deaths"--Cover flap.
Innocently enough, Detective Leah Teal's daughter Caroline decides she would like a psychic reading for her birthday. But when Caroline walks in to the psychic's shop with the family in tow, the psychic focuses on Leah, telling her details of gruesome killings that she must stop or they could go on for dozens of years.
That night, Leah lies in bed, wondering how much stock she should put into ravings from a psychic. But her curiosity gets the best of her, and she decides to take the tiny bit of evidence the psychic provided as far as it will go before writing off the case entirely. Soon, though, the clues lead her down a path toward a potential serial killer, leaving victims in a pattern all around Alvin, Alabama. Leah discovers that all of the potential killings happen on the same day- January 31st...less than a week away. If Leah can't stop this killer before then, more victims will be on her hands...

"Hiebert's first novel courts comparison to the classic To Kill a Mockingbird, but the book manages to soar as a moving achievement in its own right. In Hiebert's hands, psychological insight and restrained lyricism combine to create a coming-of-age tale as devastating as it is indelible." --Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
"This book captured me from page one. It's honest, it's raw and it's one of the best books I've read in a long, long while." --Lisa Jackson
"There's something mesmerizing about Hiebert's storytelling voice." --The New York Times Book Review
