( Guilt Of Lies )
Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she–or anyone–saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.
Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings–massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.
Yet it’s immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left about the camp’s twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.
And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.

One year ago Chellie Morris drove through a stop sign less than a mile from her house into the stampeding traffic of State Route 30. Nathan, her husband, arrived home after the accident to find a four word note on a bookshelf; not a suicide note, not a goodbye, not even a reminder for something he might forget, just four unexplainable words.
Too much alcohol and too little sleep have turned the last 365 days into a stagnant haze. Painful flashes from the last day, uneven rewinds of the past, and the haunting words of the note chaotically rumble and roll through his mind.
Four words only, four words left.

Tampa homicide lieutenant Carl Kane has led up grisly crime scenes before, but this one is different it’s identical to the remains left thirty years prior by a man who had whipped the city into chaos.
But Jack Redding, or as the media called him, The Quilter, had been put to death in the nineties. These murders are the doing of a copycat someone with inside knowledge of the original crimes.
As the bodies pile up, the motivation for the killings and the connection shared by the victims become clear. Kane must race around the clock to find the person or persons responsible for recreating the work of the most heinous murderer Tampa has ever seen. Little does Kane know his path will lead him to one of the most horrifying scenes he’s ever witnessed. In his line of work, and after recent events, that’s saying something.
