Overview

In a small Texas town, murder brings home the unforgotten past.
Twenty years ago, as Hurricane Althea lashed Central Texas, twelve-year-old Jordan Poteet and his friends decided to ride it out in their tree house. But in the still eye of the tempest, they raced for safety—and stumbled over the body of a beautiful girl.
Now, the six schoolmates who shared the grisly sight of death so long ago are being coolly murdered, one by one, day by day. By whom? Why? Unless Jordan and Police Chief Junebug Moncrief, another survivor of the storm, can answer those questions fast, it will be their turn to die. . . .

Texas sleuth Jordan Poteet tackles his third hometown whodunit in this thrilling follow-up to Do Unto Others and The Only Good Yankee. Twenty years ago, 12-year-old Jordan Poteet and five friends stumbled upon the body of a dead teenage girl. Now Jordan's friends are being murdered one by one. Original.

    So far I've read 4 Jeffrey Abbott books and I have never been disappointed! I am sure more of his books will be on my Nook and stay on my 'Favorites' list.
