About this item

The idyllic facade of a small coastal tourist magnet hides its secrets well. But when the shining star pitcher of the girls softball team guns down the most popular boy in school, the shockwaves reverberate far beyond the schools walls. In the wake of the killing, two of the towns newer residents turn over deeply embedded rocks, exposing a subculture of almost unimaginable horror lurking beneath.

Formerly a nurse with Mdecins Sans Frontires, Dolly has become a defender and confidante to dozens of local teenage girls, and she refuses to accept that MaryLou (Mighty Mary). McCoys gunning down Cameron Taft in a high school hallway is a typical school shooting. Although MaryLous guilt is not in doubtits even captured on the schools security camerathe girl insists on a trial... but inexplicably refuses to cooperate with her own defense. Enlisting her troupe of teenagers and the local contacts she has cemented, Dolly calls on all of her resources to get to the truth... and to whatever secret MaryLou is guarding.

When Dollys husband, Dell, sees his beloved wife begin her quest, he immediately signs on. A former mercenary and ex-Legionnaire, Dell treats this job as he would any otherwith no boundaries. His entire arsenal is put into play: guile, extortion, tracking devices, shadow networks, and, finally, an act of terrorism that blows the cover off the soul-killing rite of passage demanded of the towns most vulnerable girls. Dells discovery of MaryLous true motive and the communitys shocking failure to protect its children culminates in a decision to put the town itself on trial. The explosive verdict blows away the facade... and forces the village to stand in judgment of itself. The aftershocks keep coming until the foundation itself fractures, leaving cracks too deep to patch ever again.
