In this chilling follow-up to Gardner’s Alone, police sharpshooter Bobby Dodge has just traded up from sniper to detective when he’s summoned to a horrifying crime scene: six dead girls in an underground pit. The paper reports that one corpse bears a locket inscribed with the name Annabelle Granger—which stuns the real Annabelle, a woman already suffering from the mother of all identity crises. As Dodge works to unravel the decades-old murders, new threats emerge. The tension here doesn’t stem just from the sicko responsible for setting every Boston parent on edge, but from Dodge and his witness, whose relationship sizzles as the case careens to its twisted climax.
