Overview

Along the banks of the Ohio River, the small town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, has been the home of quiet pleasures and safety for Adrienne Reynolds and her fourteen-year-old daughter Skye since the death of Adrienne's husband four years ago. Their sense of safety is shattered, however, when Adrienne and Skye find the body of one of Adrienne's best friends, Julianna, in a once-elegant, now abandoned hotel named La Belle Riviere. La Belle has a long history of misfortunes, but Julianna's murder is the most gruesome.

Evidence indicates Julianna that had a secret lover whom she met regularly in the hotel, and who could have been with her in her final moments. The only person who knows this lover's identity is the hotel caretaker, Claude Duncan. But Claude is quickly silenced-drugged and burned to death in his small cottage on the grounds of La Belle the night after Julianna's death. One by one, people close to Adrienne are brutally murdered, and it looks as though she and Skye are the next targets of a fierce killer with a shocking secret.

Carlene Thompson does it again. As I've read most of her books, she always delivers. The not really knowing till the end of what will happen keeps you reading.

I am a huge carlene thompson fan and i personally think shes better than Stephen King. This book is amazing, the climax of the story is so intense and just the way the story builds up is so suspensful and you will never guess in a million years just how the story will end, if you want a page turner you cant put down, buy this book.

The safe world Adrienne Reynolds thought she'd found in Point Pleasant for herself and her daughter, Skye, turns into a living nightmare when one of her best friends is brutally murdered. Julianna's shocking death sets in motion a chain of homicides, as each person who might be able to shed light on what really happened dies brutally. Wanting justice for her friend and the restoration of safety, Adrienne delves into the mystery, placing not only herself, but Skye, in the killer's sights. ................ **** Carlene Thompson can be relied upon to write the most intellectual of mysteries, ones that keep you guessing until the very end. An innocuous background makes the events portrayed all the more terrifying, making you believe it all could happen. ****
