The death of a young girl in a wealthy Connecticut town shakes the community in this suspenseful "tale of psychological terror, skillfully plotted, and deftly written" (San Diego Union).
In the sheltered coastal town of Grand Cove, Connecticut, the silence was broken only by the gentle lapping of waves and the soft pop of tennis balls on hidden courts. Amanda Hammond, a beautiful young psychiatrist, had come home to confront the ghosts of her past: her mother's body floating in the Sound, her blue chiffon gown rippling on the water...
Then, on a perfect June evening, the body of a lovely blonde girl drifted in on the tide. Her name was Kelly Payne and her parents were, as usual, unavailable—even for her death. So it fell to Amanda to identify the remains of her young patient. Marks on the body suggested not accidental drowning, but murder. In the fatal undertow, a number of suspects began to emerge—among them, Amanda.
As a web of danger and suspicion closes in around her, Darkness Falls moves towards a terrifying climax, where a cunning, obsessed killer crafts his final revenge...
