Police detective Hannah Duncker didn't expect to return to her native Öland. She fled after her father's murder conviction and returns to make peace with her shame. She has a new job with the local police and a nosy new partner. A fifteen-year-old's death catapults her into a murder investigation that resurrects ghosts from her previous life. As she hunts for the truth, she must confront the people she abandoned. Not all are pleased to see her back home, and she soon learns that digging through the past comes with consequences. Author Johanna Mo crafts a breakneck island noir where secrets linger, guilt stains, and collective memory is long and unforgiving.
