Muddled by jetlag and with no one to trust as her marriage deteriorates in an unfamiliar country where she doesn't speak the language, Rose, who was an investigative journalist back in New York, sets out to solve the mystery-and discovers nothing in this bucolic town is what it seems as she uncovers a cascade of terrifying secrets leading to a twist that will leave readers chilled to the bone.
