Sinopsis: Chantalene has terrible nightmares from when she was a child: a dark barn in a wind-swept moonlit field. Her mother is inside, screaming; her father is hanging from the rafters for a crime he didn't commit. She hides in the field, watching as four hooded figures emerge, their faces hidden in shadow. But deep in the recesses of her memory, she knows who they are.
Returning to her hometown of Tetumka in rural Oklahoma, Chantalene vows to learn the identity of her father's killers. One man claims to have answers for her, but when she finds him slain on the floor of his butcher shop, Chantalene realizes the danger she faces in discovering the truth.
As Chantalene relentlessly searches for more clues, Tetumka's quiet citizens grow increasingly hostile; her foster parents advise her to let the past lie. With the help of Drew Sander, a local boy back home from the big city, Chantalene uncovers the dark secrets of both her hometown and her own mind, bringing her closer to the faces behind the shadows that haunt her dreams.
Biografía del autor: M.K. Preston currently edits and publishes BYLINE, a small press trade magazine for writers. She grew up on a wheat farm in Oklahoma, near a town not too different from the setting of her first mystery novel, PERHAPS SHE'LL DIE. From her father, she learned the art of storytelling; from her mother, a reverence for books; and from Oklahoma's red earth, a love of wildlife and the outdoors.
Preston lives with her childhood sweetheart and first husband (it's the same guy) beside a creek in central Oklahoma, where she gardens and dodges tornadoes.
