Everyone is shocked when Catherine, a pregnant surrogate, goes missing—from the gay couple whose child she was carrying, to her estranged sister Eva-Sue, to her college friend Marcus Agaston, now a Dallas reporter. When Catherine’s body appears on the shoreline of Lake Ray Hubbard seven days later, Marcus vows to find the killer.
However, Marcus has a dark past—one that his husband Sam, a successful lawyer, knows nothing about. And the more clues Marcus uncovers about the killer’s identity, the more connections he discovers between a history he’d rather forget and Catherine’s mysterious murder. Someone will stop at nothing to keep their secrets buried, and as Marcus gets closer to finding the killer, a shocking revelation proves you can’t trust anyone.
