When Elena Waters discovers her estranged son, Johnny, has been murdered in Taos, she returns to New Mexico after a ten-year absence, determined to find his killer in spite of opposition from her family and friends. Before he was murdered, Johnny's career as a singer was taking off, thanks to the efforts of Elena's childhood friends, Jack and Maggie Dalton, a rich and powerful couple who run a production company in Taos. Elena's search for the truth about her son's death brings her into the luxurious world of the Daltons' compound, where she uncovers a web of lies that casts suspicion on the people closest to her. Everyone is a suspect, and everything Elena thinks she knows about her friends, her family and herself becomes uncertain as she explores her son's hidden life. This is a taut, contemporary novel of suspense about the unravelling secrets and lies that bind two families together.
