A journalist begins to question everything she knows about her mother's murder in a startling novel of suspense by the New York Times bestselling author of The Body Reader. Culpable in an expose gone tragically wrong, investigative journalist Jupiter Bellarose takes her boss's advice: head back to her hometown for a fluff piece and get her world in balance. But in Savannah, the past is waiting. Twenty years ago Jupiter's mother, actress and celebrated beauty Marie Nova, was murdered, leaving many in her wake: Jupiter's father, who has erased memories of his wife's murder with alcohol. The matriarch of the cosmetics company who helped make Marie a star-and who takes every opportunity to reopen old wounds. Then there's the fragile cop with blood on his hands, and the killer whose confession no longer seems convincing. With so many lingering questions, Jupiter must revisit the grisly event that has influenced every decision in her life. Maybe her homecoming will bring closure. Or maybe the worst is yet to come.
