Fiona Taylor enjoys staying out late with her friends. She hates her mother. She’s bored by her high school, and tired of her day-to-day life. A typical teenager, perhaps. Except, in some ways, Fiona is not typical. Her mother has forbidden her to enter the basement. A man jogs past their house every day trying hard not to look like a cop. And her mother's cello case seems to get heavier every time she brings it home. Oh, yes: there’s also a killer in the history books called the Red Creek killer, caught years ago—but is about to become part of Fiona's life.
