(From the publisher):
A small, respectible New England town is the scene of the rape and brutal murder of Sally Anders while babysitting. After the shock and grief has subsided, the question on everyone's lips is: "How could such a thing happen in this lovely community? Then, suspicion and fear takes grip of the townsfold as motives and actions are challanged with devastaging results.
The criminal investigation proceeds firsthand, through the words and thoughts of the police, the victim's friends and family...and the members of the local governing body. As they speak their minds-and unwittingly scatter clues along the way-a picture gradually emerges of a disturbed individual bent on charting his private career of lust and murder.
