Idyllic Carystown, Kentucky seems to be the perfect place for Kate Russell to hide from a vindictive, abusive husband. She has a good job, a new best friend, and a new man. For two years she's cautiously happy, until the ghost of Isabella Moon, a nine-year-old girl who's been missing since Kate came to town, begins to haunt her. No one wants justice for the missing child more than Sheriff Bill Delaney, who considers Isabella's unsolved disappearance one of his greatest failures. Now, Kate comes to him to say she knows where Isabella's body is buried, but he doesn't trust her. He senses her secrets, and when he links her to the murder of one of the town's most beloved women, he's certain she's real trouble. But Kate isn't the only one with secrets. The good people of Carystown have plenty to hide, and in the middle of it all is Isabella Moon.
