For popular theater star Courtney Valance, high school was a breeze. Beautiful, talented, and driven, she was the envy of her classmates and the prized girlfriend of Belknap Country Day’s most eligible bachelor, Ted Parker. But that was before Ted’s best friend, Hugh, was found dead. Before Courtney went missing. Before the clothes she was last seen in washed up on the banks of the Souhegan River.
Now everyone believes Courtney is dead, too—and her eligible bachelor is the number one murder suspect. Before the day of Ted’s trial, Courtney’s sister Anna receives a mysterious package with a note in Courtney’s handwriting. Does that mean Courtney could still be alive?
One thing is clear: Courtney’s picturesque life was not what it seemed. She needed an escape…and that’s exactly what she got.
