Nathan has never been able to forget the worst night of his life: a party that led to the sudden, shocking death of a young woman. Only he and Bob know what really happened, and they’ve resolved to keep it that way. But years later, when Bob appears at Nathan’s door, he bears terrifying news that threatens to tear Nathan’s world apart. Because Nathan has his own secrets now.
