Summary: The eagerly anticipated follow-up to the New York Times bestselling psychological thriller In the Woods Six months after the events of In the Woods, Detective Cassie Maddox is still trying to recover. SheÂs transferred out of the murder squad and started a relationship with Detective Sam OÂNeill, but sheÂs too badly shaken to make a commitment to him or to her career. Then Sam calls her to the scene of his new case: a young woman found stabbed to death in a small town outside Dublin. The dead girlÂs ID says her name is Lexie MadisonÂthe identity Cassie used years ago as an undercover detectiveÂand she looks exactly like Cassie. With no leads, no suspects, and no clue to LexieÂs real identity, CassieÂs old undercover boss, Frank Mackey, spots the opportunity of a lifetime. They can say that the stab wound wasnÂt fatal and send Cassie undercover in her place to find out information that the police never would and to tempt the killer out of hiding. At first Cassie thinks the idea is crazy, but she is seduced by the prospect of working on a murder investigation again and by the idea of assuming the victimÂs identity as a graduate student with a cozy group of friends. As she is drawn into LexieÂs world, Cassie realizes that the girlÂs secrets run deeper than anyone imagined. Her friends are becoming suspicious, Sam has discovered a generations-old feud involving the old house the students live in, and Frank is starting to suspect that CassieÂs growing emotional involvement could put the whole investigation at risk. Another gripping psychological thriller featuring the headstrong protagonist weÂve come to love, from an author who has proven that she can deliver.
