Blackwell North Amer
Halloween is fast approaching, but there are no treats in store for part-time teacher Kate Austen. The unsolved killing of a local girl is testing her mettle, an impending divorce from her husband Andy is working her last nerve, and an unexpected visit from her mother-in-law has sent Kate's boyfriend, police detective Michael Stone, running for cover. Kate thought things couldn't get much worse. But now, one of her own students, Julie Harmon, has been found murdered - shot to death in a remote section of Berkeley. A possible link between the two killings has unleashed a flurry of fear in the once peaceful community of Walnut Hills, and put a spark in Kate's investigative mind.
The overlapping threads of the murders have Kate worried. Especially when the clues lead to a clandestine high school research project and the discovery of Julie's private book of love sonnets inscribed from a mystery date. And doubly so when Kate starts receiving threatening letters, veiled warnings and a special delivery souvenir. As the tension mounts, Kate knows she must work fast, before the shadowy stranger strikes again.
