The first mystery in the Oak Knoll series starring FBI Profiler Vince Leone, from Sunday Times bestselling author Tami Hoag

The first mystery in the Oak Knoll series starring FBI Profiler Vince Leone, from Sunday Times bestselling author Tami Hoag. Three dead women; three children each with their families under suspicion; a community packed with secrets. And one serial killer.

On the damp, leaf-strewn ground a gruesome trophy is displayed. It's a young woman. Although her battered body has been buried, her head is propped on a stone like an offering, her mouth and eyes glued shut, her eardrums destroyed.

This killer has struck this peaceful town before - and the savagery he inflicts on his victims is increasing. Vince Leone, a pioneering FBI profiler, is called in to try to unlock the mind of the killer - a strategy that pulls him deep into the devastated community.

Suspicions thicken, secrets spill out and reputations shatter as Vince draws ever nearer to evil . . .

Watch out for the next title in the Oak Knoll FBI Profiler thriller series SECRETS TO THE GRAVE
