Overview
At the heart of every crime, there's a family...
My son is a murderer.... So begins this chilling and emotionally charged mystery from highly acclaimed author Barbara Taylor Sissel.
Emily Lebay had always thought of her family as ordinary. Sure, they've endured their share of problems, even a time of great trouble--what family hasn't? But when a woman's body turns up in the dense woods near their home, and Emily's grown son, Tucker, is accused of murder, Emily is forced to confront the unfathomable, and everything she believed about her life is called into question.
This isn't the first time Tucker has been targeted by the police; a year ago he was a person of interest when another woman was found dead in the same stretch of woods. Still, neither Emily nor her daughter, Lissa, can reconcile their Tucker with these brutal crimes. Terrified, convinced there's been a tragic mistake, Emily and Lissa set out to learn the truth about Tucker, once and for all. And while his life hangs in the balance, what they discover proves far more shocking than their darkest fears....
"A gut-wrenching mystery...enjoyable and insightful." --RT Book Reviews on Evidence of Life

Past secrets contribute to present-day angst in this solid suspense novel from Sissel (Evidence of Life). Emily Lebay routinely makes excuses for her 34-year-old son, Tucker, who still lives at home with Emily and her husband, Roy, in their small Texas town. To Emily’s dismay, Tucker comes under suspicion for the murder of Jessica Sweet. Jessica’s body was found near the site of an earlier murder, that of Miranda Quick. Tucker was questioned extensively about Miranda’s slaying, but police eventually cleared him. Convinced that Tucker didn’t kill Jessica, Emily and her daughter, Lissa, work to exonerate him. Meanwhile, Emily is desperately trying to prevent the fracturing of her family, as Roy, a Vietnam vet, struggles with PTSD and wants Tucker out of the house. Despite his failings, Tucker remains a likable yet flawed character, and the even pacing keeps the reader’s interest until the captivating conclusion.
