Fifty years ago, Sam Moore's little brother, Billy, vanished without a trace - leaving Sam with guilt that haunts him to this day.
Fifty years with no body, no leads, and no answers. Until now.
When Sam unearths a mysterious green marble buried in his garden, he's shocked to find himself transported back in time - to Billy. Whisked between past and present with no warning, and receiving only glimpses of their childhood, he struggles to unlock the secret of his brother's fate.
But the marble isn't the only secret the ground holds. Further digging uncovers human remains - the legacy of a serial killer who's been targeting one boy every five years since Billy vanished. The next five-year mark is coming up fast. And now Sam's grandson may be in the killer's sights.
Can Sam tie the past with the present and unravel the mystery of his brother's disappearance - before the killer strikes again?

An amazing thriller.
I don't think I've ever read a thriller with such a good start to the story and character. The author eases us into a very visually descriptive book. Sam is a great character. We get to know the main characters family, it's great!
Sam. He is a doctor, or was, with none of the pretension that can go with Dr based characters. He's a nice man, a family man but also a very intelligent man. A really good character that you really get to know and like.
I really liked the sense of pace that you get. To start with I felt relaxed when listening to it. I was getting to know someone, then you start to also see the unfolding mystery and it draws you into the thriller element. It's an amazing journey and there's no one scene to pick. It's like picking your favourite bit of a painting, you can't, you have to see the whole thing.
Towards the beginning when he's playing with his grandkids at his BBQ. It felt like one of those memories of a special time spent with family and friends. It was a snapshot of everything that is Sam.
