- KurzbeschreibungNew York Times and no.1 international bestselling author Linwood Barclay delivers the second spine-chilling thriller in the Promise Falls trilogy.
When private investigator Cal Weaver looks into a break-in at the home of a recently deceased man, he uncovers far more than he is prepared for after he finds a hidden room that was used for salacious activities. Perhaps something illegal...
Detective Barry Duckworth is doggedly trying to solve two murders, one of which is three years old. He believes the killings are connected, since each featured a similar distinctive wound. And the key to his mystery may lie with Cal Weaver's own case.
As the lies begin to unravel, and another murder occurs, Cal and Barry find themselves headed straight into the heart of dark secrets as they uncover more startling truths about Promise Falls...

They decided Derek was the one who should get into the trunk.
Before heading off, the four of them, Derek Cutter included, thought it would be cool to smuggle someone in. Not because they couldn't afford a fourth ticket. That wasn't the issue. They just felt the situation demanded it of them. It was the sort of thing you were supposed to do.
After all, this was the last night they'd ever have the chance. Like so many other businesses in and around Promise Falls these days, the Constellation Drive-in Theater was packing it in. What with multiplexes, 3-D, DVDs, movies you could download at home and watch in seconds-why go to a drive-in, except maybe to make out? And given how much smaller cars had gotten since the drive-in was first conceived, even that wasn't much of a reason to watch a movie under the stars.
Still, even for people of Derek's generation, there was something nostalgic about a drive-in. He could remember his parents bringing him here for the first time when he was eight or nine, and how excited he'd been. It was a triple bill, the movies becoming successively more mature. The first was one of the Toy Story flicks-Derek had brought along his Buzz Lightyear and Woody action figures-which was followed by some rom-com Matthew McConaughey thing, back when he was only doing crap, and then a Jason Bourne movie. Derek had barely managed to stay awake until the end of Toy Story. His parents had made a bed for him in the backseat so he could zonk out when they watched features two and three.
Derek longed for those times. When his parents were still together.
This night, the Constellation was showing one of those dumber-than-dumb Transformers movies, where alien robots inhabiting Earth had disguised themselves as cars-usually Chevrolets, thank you very much, product placement-and trucks. Morphing from car to robot involved a slew of special effects. Lots of things blew up; buildings were destroyed. It was the kind of movie none of the girls they knew were interested in seeing, and even though the guys tried to make them understand the movie itself didn't matter, that this was an event, that this night at the drive-in was history, they'd failed to win them over.
Even the guys knew this was a dumb movie. In fact, there had been agreement among them that the only way to see a movie like this-whether in a drive-in, at a regular theater, or at home-was drunk. Which led to a discussion that they would try to sneak not only a person into the drive-in, but some beer, too.
Thing was, this was a milestone piled on top of a milestone
