Two girls. Two deaths. Two decades of silence.
As a teenager in the late 1970s, Elizabeth was the perfect victim for bullies. She was quiet, clever and desperate for a friend.
Then that summer, Rachel arrived and everything changed. Elizabeth was drawn to the bright and beautiful newcomer like a moth to a flame.
Rachel had her own reasons for wanting Elizabeth as a friend, and although their relationship was far from equal, Elizabeth would do anything for Rachel.
Then the first body was discovered. Now, twenty years on, Elizabeth wants nothing more than to keep the secrets of her teenage years where they belong: in the past.
But another body has been found, and she can't keep running from what happened.
