The Sea of Lost Girls
A NovelBook - 2020
"Tess has worked hard to keep her past buried, where it belongs. Now sheђ́ةs the wife to a respected professor at an elite boarding school, where she also teaches. Her seventeen-year-old son, Rudy, whose dark moods and complicated behavior sheђ́ةs long worried about, seems to be thriving: he has a lead role in the school play and a smart and ambitious girlfriend. Tess tries not to think about the mistakes she made eighteen years ago, and mostly, she succeeds. And then one more morning she gets a text at 2:50 AM: it́ђةs Rudy, asking for help. When Tess picks him up she finds him drenched and shivering, with a dark stain on his sweatshirt. Four hours later, Tess gets a phone call from the Haywood school headmistress: Lila Zeller, Rudyђ́ةs girlfriend, has been found dead on the beach, not far from where Tess found Rudy just hours before. As the investigation into Lilaђ́ةs death escalates, Tess finds her family attacked on all sides. What first seemed like a tragic accidental death is turning into something far more sinister, and not only is Tessђ́ةs son a suspect but her husband is a person of interest too. But Lilaђ́ةs death isnђ́ةt the first blemish on Haywoodђ́ةs record, and the more Tess learns about Haywoodђ́ةs fabled history, the more she realizes that not all skeletons will stay safely locked in the closet" -- Amazon.com
