Broken Promise by Linwood Barclay
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
"When single-parent David Harwood loses his job and moves from Boston back to his childhood home of Promise Falls, he's not expecting anything very exciting to happen. But when he goes to see his cousin Marla - stll not quite right after losing her baby - he finds something he definitely wasn't counting on.
Marla is caring for a new baby, a baby she says was given to her "by an angel" - but when David tries to find the real mother, he discovers a grisly murder scene.
To save Marla from a jail sentence which could finally destroy her sanity, David realises that he must dig beneath the familiar surface of Promise Falls. And soon he uncovers a place he never knew, a town of twisted minds and ever darker deeds, with an awful secret at its heart."
I was quickly hooked into this book. A real page turner. Lots of characters that weren't fully explored yet. Will be looking out for the next book in the saga.
