Beneath the moon's eerie midnight glow, she dances alone.
Somebody sees her there by the creek.
Somebody who wants to watch her dance-and die...
Three years have passed since exotic, willful Dara Prince disappeared from Winston, West Virginia, leaving a note saying she'd run away. Now a body has been found in the creek. A body, Christine Ireland suspects, that could very well belong to her adopted sister Dara. Deputy Sheriff Michael Winter certainly seems to think so. But if Dara's dead, who's been sending Ames Prince the letters he cherishes: always with a different postmark and always signed with his missing daughter's initial?
When Dara's diary turns up unexpectedly, Christine is plunged into her lost sister's dark and mysterious world. Clearly, in the days before her disappearance, Dara was certain somebody was stalking her. As past melds hauntingly with present, people who knew Dara are meeting tragic fates. Now, someone is watching Christine's every move-perhaps just the way they once watched Dara, right before she died. If, indeed, she really did die...
