Where is Lara Mayhew?
Lara, a congressmanâ€™s media assistant, suddenly quits her jobâ€”and disappears on the way to her Washington, DC, apartment.
Novice FBI agent Meg Murray, a childhood friend of Laraâ€™s, gets a message from her that same night, a message that says sheâ€™s disillusioned and â€śgoing home.â€ť To Richmond, Virginia. Meg discovers that she never got there. And bodies fitting Laraâ€™s description are showing up in nearby riversâ€¦ Could she be the victim of a serial killer?
Meg is assigned to work with special agent Matt Bosworth, a hard-nosed pro in the FBIâ€™s unit of paranormal investigatorsâ€”the Krewe of Hunters. They trace the route Meg and Lara took more than once in the past, visiting battlefields and graveyards from Harpers Ferry to Gettysburg. Places where the dead share their secrets with those who can hearâ€¦ As Meg and Matt pursue the possibility of a serial killer, they find themselves in the middle of a political conspiracy. Is there a connection? If so, has Lara been silenced for good? And whomâ€”besides each otherâ€”can they trust?
