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. . . .

What People are Saying About This

Sharyn McCrumb
Promises of Home transcends the genre -- a poignant, literary novel.

A recurring theme in his fiction is the idea of extraordinary danger befalling ordinary people, who must then fight to return to their normal lives. His 2005 novel Panic is a great example of that. His novels have been bestsellers not just here, but also abroad.

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.

Disappointing. I have never read a Jeff Abbot book before and probably won't again.
