Hank Gendreau has been serving a life sentence in the Maine State Prison for twenty-five years for the brutal murder of his teenage daughter in 1987--a crime he claims he didn't commit. When the bodies of six other girls are found in a shallow grave just over the Canadian border, all of them missing since the '80s, Gendreau sees a chance to finally prove his innocence... And exact his revenge on the man he's convinced was actually behind his little girl's death: Adam Solomon.
Sins of the Father finds Erin Solomon continuing her quest to learn more about her father's history by investigating Gendreau's claim of innocence. Her investigation leads her down a path of dark secrets, painful truths, and deadly obsessions, as she struggles to reconcile her memories of her father with the cold, ruthless portrait others paint. When she and fellow reporter "Diggs" Diggins are forced into the northern Maine woods by someone intent on making them pawns in a diabolical game of cat and mouse, it will take everything they have to get out alive, and finally learn the truth about Erin's father's past--and the trail of bodies in his wake.
Please note that this novel is not a cozy mystery; contains some adult language and situations.
