Summary
When author Sam Bayer heads home to seek inspiration for his next book, he delves into an unsolved murder case in which, as a teenager, he had discovered a girl's body and engages in a turbulent affair with a beautiful but strange woman, but the killer returns and nobody is safe, including Sam's teenage daughter.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Bestselling author Sam Bayer is stuck.  Burned out from his third divorce, bored with the formulaic rut his writing has fallen into, and unable to deliver the manuscript for which he has been paid a stratospheric advance, he is desperate for inspiration.  But a chance visit to his hometown of Crane's View, New York, sparks his imagination.  Soon he immerses himself in an unsolved case of murder that took place when he was a teenager--Sam himself had discovered the body of the victim, a beautiful and wild teenage girl named Pauline.  At the same time he is drawn into an explosive affair with a gorgeous but seriously loopy fan with the improbable name of Veronica Lake.

As Sam learns the disturbing facts about his lover's past, Pauline's murderer reappears--not only endangering Sam but putting his beloved fifteen-year-old daughter in jeopardy as well.  Not knowing whom to trust, Sam has to brace himself for the truly unexpected resolution to this decades-old mystery.
