For some people, trouble just finds them...
Thirty years ago, Vincent King became a killer. Now he's been released from prison and is back in his hometown of Cape Haven, California.
Not everyone is pleased to see him.
Like Star Radley, his ex-girlfriend, and sister of the girl he killed.
Duchess Radley, Star's thirteen-year-old daughter, is part-carer, part-protector to her younger brother, Robin - and to her deeply troubled mother.
But in trying to protect Star, Duchess inadvertently sets off a chain of events that will have tragic consequences not only for her family, but also for the whole town.
Murder, revenge, retribution.
But how far can we run from the past when the past seems doomed to repeat itself?
