Shana Merchant is back, and her new case couldn't be more personal. The Senior Investigator has spent years running from her past, but she never imagined a murder would drive her to the most dangerous place of all—home.
In THE DEAD SEASON, Shana finds herself caught between two crimes: a cold case involving her estranged uncle, and the abduction of a local child. What's the connection between these seemingly disparate crimes? Is serial murderer Blake Bram to blame? With the life of a little boy on the line, Shana and her partner Tim Wellington race from Alexandria Bay in the Thousand Islands of Upstate New York to Shana's hometown of Swanton, VT to find out.
