When Bill Robinson agreed to help the beautiful Stephanie find who had ordered the kill shot on her father twenty-five years ago, he knew it was much more than a cold case. What he didn’t know, was how hot it would get the deeper he dug into the past or the danger that waited for him and everyone he talked to.
Jill Benoit was retired from law enforcement and had every intention of staying that way. She had put in her twenty-five years and was more than ready to become a contented Vermont recluse - if only her neighbor would let her be. And then there were those annoying calls from that guy Robinson-and soon Jill was drawn into the same web of treachery and conspiracy that would lead her and Bill to the brink of death.
Will the quiet Vermont landscape and Mountains of Washington State hide their secrets for another half century? Will the truth of a decade’s old crime come to light - and will anyone have proof? Can anyone really break the web of fear and hate and destroy the spiders that weave it?
