Now, as this new murder investigation draws Kate irresistibly in, her past and present collide in terrifying, unexpected ways. For weeks the smell permeated the porch, worked its way into windows and open doors, hung on our clothes, skin, and hair. As they struggle to unravel the clues in the picture, it becomes clear that someone thinks Virginia knows more than she does and that she must be stopped. Description 'Another complex, compelling romantic suspense novel from a queen of the genre' Kirkus Reviews A broken promise reveals a terrifying legacy in this electrifying novel from the New York Times bestselling author of When All the Girls Have Gone. A story in which the setting itself plays a role as important as the characters — a vivid, living thing.

Like Virginia, PI Cabot Sutter was one of the children in the cult who survived that fire—and only he can help her now. As they struggle to unravel the clues in the painting, it becomes clear that someone thinks Virginia knows more than she does and that she must be stopped. On the night she arrives, a young girl is murdered—a horrific crime that eerily mirrors another from Kate's childhood. There's no mistaking it.

It dangled about three feet from the top of a tall wooden stake driven into the center of the small field where uneven rows of green peas were just coming up. Enough to chill anyone! The mystery here is a cracker, fast-paced with a high-stakes ending. Plot[ edit ] InKate Cypher, a year-old school nurse, returns home to her Vermont hippie commune where she grew up to care for her aging mother, who is afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. Krentz dives into sociopathic psychology and complex characterization to great effect in this twisty story, whose plot clips along at a terrific pace.

Promise not to tell. book

I reached out and touched the greasy black feathers of its ragged wing. Three decades earlier, her dirt-poor friend Del—shunned and derided by classmates as "Potato Girl"—was brutally slain.

And now one of her artists has taken her own life, but not before sending Virginia a last picture: a painting that makes Virginia doubt everything about the so-called suicide—and her own past. Overall, this a solid outing for JAK, who was beginning to really worry me. Although dead, the bird pulsed with life.

Del said her brother Nicky had shot the crow two weeks before. There's no mistaking it. Her touch seemed almost loving—like the bird was her pet parakeet, a creature she'd named and fed.

The mystery of this book is solved, but the overall arc of the trilogy is obviously going to feature in Book 3. Combining murder mystery and coming-of-age tale with supernatural elements, this taut novel is above all a reflection on the haunting power of memory.

She gave it a shove, making it fly toward me. Thrown into an inferno of desire and deception, Virginia and Cabot draw ever closer to the mystery of their shared memories - and the shocking fate of the one man who still wields the power to destroy everything they hold dear.

Tautly written, deeply insightful, and beautifully evocative, Promise Not To Tell is a riveting and unforgettable debut.

Like the raccoon my mother once found under our porch back in Massachusetts, way back under the floorboards where no one could reach it.

Promise Not to Tell (Sons of Anson Salinas Series #2)

The first book in this new series by veteran author, Jayne Ann Krentz, got off to a rocky start, or at least it did for me. An electrifying thriller with the darkest of secrets at its heart, this is perfect for fans of Nora Roberts or Sandra Brown 'The master of romantic suspense. Metallic green flies buzzed in the air.

Could the killer be loose again? Cabot is horrified as his past crashes back but is also challenged to rise high and strong as faces his childhood worst nightmares. For weeks that crow hung there on its string like a broken marionette, quietly rotting, a gruesome warning for other crows to stay away.

The tarpaper roofs had collapsed; the wooden walls were rotted and mossy. McMahon does a particularly good job of portraying the cruelty of school children.

A lot of action. Again, there are some trigger elements here: cults, suicide, panic attacks, PTSD and the accompanying horrific flashbacks that can paralyse people.
