"Luke lied. You lied. Be at the funeral"
When his childhood best friend Luke is found dead after committing a terrible crime, Federal Agent Aaron Falk gets a note reading, "Luke lied. You lied. Be at the funeral."
Twenty years ago, the boys were each other's alibi when Falk was accused of murder. Falk hasn't returned to his hometown since he and his father were driven out under a cloud of suspicion. But now Luke has done something awful-and more than one person knows they didn't tell the truth back then.
When Falk reluctantly returns amid the worst drought in a century, long-buried mysteries will resurface, as will the lies that have haunted him. And by the climax of this atmospheric and razor-sharp debut, Falk will find that small towns have always hidden big secrets.
