Abstract:
It starts as a prank -- a way to blow off steam after a long summer at Camp Horseshoe. Among the teen counselors, tensions and hormones are running high. No wonder the others agree when Jo-Beth Chancellor suggests they scare Monica O'Neal a little--or a lot. Monica has it coming, and no one will really get hurt. What could go wrong? Twenty years later, Lucas Dalton, a senior detective with the sheriff's department, is investigating the discovery of human remains in a cavern at what used to be Camp Horseshoe. Lucas knows the spot well. His father, a preacher, ran the camp, and Lucas worked there that infamous summer when two girls went missing. One is believed to have been killed by a convict on the loose. Monica O'Neal is thought to have drowned and been washed out to sea. Lucas knows he should step down from such a personal case. He's already jeopardized his career by removing evidence of his involvement. But maybe it's time to uncover the whole truth at last. That's why five former female counselors are coming back to the small Oregon town -- among them, Bernadette Warden, the woman Lucas has never forgotten. Each one knows something about that terrible night. Each promised not to tell. And as they reunite, a new horror unfolds.

Summary

Summary

In a fast-paced, brilliantly twisted novel of suspense from #1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson, the deadly secrets of a long-ago summer stir to life once more.

It starts as a prank--a way to blow off steam after a long summer at Camp Horseshoe. Among the teen counselors, tensions and hormones are running high. No wonder the others agree when Jo-Beth Chancellor suggests they scare Monica O'Neal a little . . . or a lot. Monica has it coming, and no one will really get hurt. What could go wrong?

Everything.

Twenty years later, Lucas Dalton, a senior detective with the sheriff's department, is investigating the discovery of human remains in a cavern at what used to be Camp Horseshoe. Lucas knows the spot well. His father, a preacher, ran the camp, and Lucas worked there that infamous summer when two girls went missing. No one knows what happened to either of them, though with a dangerous convict on the loose, gossip was rife that they may have been kidnapped, or worse.

For Lucas, the case is personal--perhaps too much so. But it's time to uncover the whole truth at last. That's why seven former female counselors are coming back to the small Oregon town--among them, Bernadette Alsace, the woman Lucas has never forgotten. Each one knows something about that terrible night. Each promised not to tell. And as they reunite, a new horror unfolds. First come texts containing a personal memento and a simple, terrifying message: YOU WILL PAY. Then, the murders begin.

It started years ago. But it will end here--as a web of lust, greed, and betrayal is untangled to reveal a killer waiting to enact the perfect revenge.

Publisher's Weekly Review

At the start of this overly long thriller from bestseller Jackson (After She's Gone), four people-two female counselors, a part-time worker, and an escaped convict who ventured into the area-disappear from Camp Horseshoe, a religious camp in Averill, Ore., while one male counselor, Tyler Quade, is found alive with a knife lodged in his back. Twenty years later, a jawbone surfaces on the camp's beach. It belongs to one of the victims, counselor Elle Brady, and the seven surviving female counselors, Lucas Dalton (the son of Horseshoe's owner and a detective with the local police), and Tyler are called in to testify about their recollections of the events. Lucas, who broke up with Elle on the night she disappeared, has felt guilty ever since. A camper from that time, now a reporter, dredges up the story and gets in contact with the involved parties. The tension rises when all of the women get a text picturing Elle in a coffin accompanied by the message "you will pay." Too many twists and turns add nothing to the narrative, which eventually builds to a surprising, if contrived, ending. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
