The captivating new novel from New York Times bestselling author Gregg Olsen
Kitsup County forensic pathologist Birdy Waterman is well known for giving a voice to the voiceless: the corpses of people who are often victims of violent crimes. Birdy is also letting her teenage nephew Sean stay with her for a while but the family reunion is put on hold when Birdy gets a phone call from the coroner s office. An unidentified foot has been found in Banner Forest. The only clue to its owner: pink nail polish on the toenails. As Birdy teams up with homicide detective Kendall Stark to investigate, she soon discovers that people all over town are hiding secrets that can prove deadly if they are uncovered.
Real narrative drive, a great setup, a gruesome crime... fine characters.... there was a Stephen King-like feel for place and weirdness, and a John Connolly-like feel for grotesquery...As good as it gets.
This intricately layered story, keeping the tension taut and pages turning... Olsen deftly juggles multiple plot lines [and] will keep fans of crime fiction hooked. - Publishers Weekly
