Book Overview

A true crime podcast yields new revelations about a shocking murder in a riveting novel of suspense by Washington Post and Amazon Charts bestselling author Loreth Anne White.

True crime podcaster Trinity Scott is chasing breakout success, and her brand-new serial may get her there. Her subject is Clayton Jay Pelley. More than two decades ago, the respected family man and guidance counselor confessed to the brutal murder of teenage student Leena Rai. But why he killed her has always been a mystery.

In a series of exclusive interviews from prison, Clayton discloses to Trinity the truth about what happened that night beneath Devil's Bridge. It's not what anyone in the Pacific Northwest town of Twin Falls expects. Clayton says he didn't do it. Was he lying then? Or now?

As her listeners increase and ratings skyrocket, Trinity is missing a key player in the story: Rachel Walczak, the retired detective who exposed Pelley's twisted urges and put him behind bars. She's not interested in playing Clayton's game--until Trinity digs deeper and the podcast's reverb widens. Then Rachel begins to question everything she thinks she knows about the past.

With each of Clayton's teasing reveals, one thing is clear: he's not the only one in Twin Falls with a secret.

   A lesson to b learned
He has a good read, even if we don't know everything. It's that age of free flow of information that makes such an impression. It's hard to imagine how youth can be so cruel to each other. But peer pressure and herd mentality sometimes opens a door to be cruel or gang up on someone different.
   Very complex drama
I first thought going back and forth from the time of the murder, to the present day, would be confusing, but I found it was okay. The story was complex as well as the characters, but I enjoyed it all. I would recommend that others read this book.
   Not what I was expecting. It was better!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who reads it. It kept me guessing, but I never let go until the author was ready to spring it. It was so realistic, even though we were losing a lot of money. It could happen in most any community, it just takes a few minutes to realize it. The hypnotherapy made him think he was kicking in the head. Other stuff could have been planted there as well, he said.
   Hard to Put Down
It's been so long since I picked up a book I didn't want to put down, she said. But this one drew me in, with its multidimensional characters, who were not what the average person would expect from a horror film. It was a great read, said Paul LiCalsi, executive director of music for AOL Europe.
   Excellent! Murder turned UNSOLVED murder & dark, deep community mystery.
This book was one surprise after another, Raymond said. Very timely and timely regarding predators, serial sexual abuse, sadistic behaviour, teen exclusion, needing to be accepted, damage caused by mentally locking away traumatic events that desperatly need recognition and resolution for healing, Graham said.
   Fun read but nuts..
Though it's great to see people still have faith in the American dream, Costello said. What happened is that these kids didn't conspire to kill an unpopular classmate who was desperate to fit in, Morgenthau said. Hypnotherapy can't extract the details of a murder that the client then remembers because they want to incriminate themselves. We're delighted to be back home, said Dr. Brian Stokes, director of NASA's Ames Research Center in California.
   Hooked from page 1
I enjoyed this story a lot, Morgenthau said. It had me hooked from the beginning and I couldn't wait to read more. There were some great twists and turns, and i appreciated the secrecy that can be buried in a small town. The book is very well written, and I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
   It kept my attention
Amazon Prime members get free two-day shipping on many items, plus access to thousands of other books, movies and music. This one I read to the end and the writer made you feel it was all about the characters, the rationales each had for what they did, the risk and reward of doing the right thing, Mr. Dhaliwal said. Few books, even by Nobel winners, make you think this one could be good.
   A delightfully twisted thriller you won't put down
We learn that Leema was murdered under a bridge where high school students have been partying, angering neighbors. But it wasn't until 24 years later that a reporter doing a podcast about the murder discovers that they've arrested and imprisoned the wrong man and find out what a complicated problem this really was and who really did it.
The true crime aspect was well written and believable, so was the detective work and autopsy details, Morgenthau said. I've never read a book by this author, but I can't wait to read more. This is one of my all-time favorite books. If you have issues with the male to female ratio for First Reads, or your phone picked the wrong book, contact customer service.
