Part thriller, part psychological portrait, Murr's first novel is a penetrating study of innocence and malevolence inevitably bound. The discovery of a chilling diary sends Sean Kennedy, once a foster father to a young boy, on a search to unlock the secrets of his tragic past and learn the truth about the boy's part in the disintegration of Sean's family.
