(From the publisher):
FBI agent Poppy Rice has seen plenty of murder victims in her time. But the sight she stumbles upon during her vacation on peaceful Block Island is different. It's a naked young girl lying in the road, her face contorted in a silent scream of terror. and although she has no visible wounds, it's clear that she suffered horribly before she died.
The local authorities assume the death was drug-related. Violent crimes aren't supposed to happen in this privileged enclave. And if they do, nobody talks. But Poppy isn't convinced it was an overdose--especially after a second girl's body is discovered. It turns out both teenagers had attended the same very expensive, very private, summer camp. That's all Poppy needs to know to start questioning the tight-lipped locals--and plunge recklessly into the close-knit community's dark legacy of long-buried secrets.
