Forensic psychologist Dr. Sheridan Doyle returns to his creepy hometown of Lost Creek, Pennsylvania. The gritty former coal town is best known as the site of a famous gallows, where a band of miners were publicly executed in the 1800s. Doyle has a lot of reasons to stay away—his father was abusive, his mother was convicted of killing his baby sister—but his beloved grandfather is ill and wants to see him. When Doyle arrives in Lost Creek, he begins to feel claustrophobic and decides to clear his head with a run. He ends up at the gallows, where he stumbles across a dead body. Black sheep Scarlet Dawes left town in disgrace but returns at the same time as Doyle. She holds many secrets (her family owned the mines and was responsible for the hangings), and she may know something about the dead body . . . and about the other recent murders in town. Twists and turns and family secrets abound in this tightly plotted thriller. --Rebecca Vnuk --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

We get to know a few characters well, but with many, we get an introduction, a bit of backstory (making us expect more from them), and then that's it. In a book that is part of a series, we expect and forgive this sort of thing. but in a freestanding novel, we either need less or more.
Overall, an enjoyable read, but again, I would like it to have been better.
I will definitely be re-reading this one!
