Catherine Grayston wants to save her marriage. A vacation in the quiet French village of Rousinac will surely help. Tom Grayston harbors a terrible secret that has pushed them apart. The town's secrets are far more frightening. When the couple doesn't return to England, Tom's work colleague and forensics specialist, David Frankel, sets off to France to find out what happened. He brings along eccentric and well-known criminal profiler James Harrison who can spot telltale patterns in criminal activity with savant-like brilliance and is sure to be invaluable to the case-as long as he keeps his promise to stay on his meds. What should be a routine investigation in Rousinac gets hampered at every turn by local residents who have a lot to hide. How far down the rabbit hole will David and James have to go to solve the mystery of the Grayston's holiday gone wrong? What does the frightening honeycomb of tunnels underneath the town have to do with the couple's disappearance? And why are the well-organized residents of Rousinac so hell-bent on covering up the truth at all costs?

About the Author

Jacalyn S. Burke, a British-American writer, entrepreneur and artist, moved to the US in 2002 to document the emerging Street Art scene in New York City. For the next fifteen years she worked as a tutor, a governess/nanny, an artist, a tech start up founder and a commercial artist.In 2015, Praeger (now Bloomsbury) published Jacalyn's non-fiction work, The Nanny Time Bomb - Navigating the Crisis in Child Care. The book was based upon Jacalyn's experiences working for Manhattan's 1% and was reviewed by The New York Times, in the Wealth Matters weekly column. Through her work as an artist Jacalyn self-sponsored an immigration path, becoming a US citizen in 2017, as "an alien ofextraordinary ability." In 2018 Jacalyn relocated to SW France to realize a long-held dream of writing fulltime. Along with her partner Kate, she began to renovate an 18th Century farmhouse and the land about it. During this time she began two novels: The Custodians and Wall Street Diva as well as non-fiction projects. During the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, Jacalyn continued to write and all book projects were completed in the Fall of 2022. Jacalyn is a graduate of Middlesex University, the Morris School of Journalism and the School of Visual Arts.
