A detective investigates the murder of a teenage golden boy that has rocked a small town—and the chief suspect is the victim’s mother.

Annalise Stephens Blue is a Creekville high school student with plans to become a world-famous filmmaker. As she begins filming an exposé of the town called Night Lives, she uncovers more than she bargained for: on the very first night of filming, she stumbles upon a murder in the woods, and flees the scene steps ahead of the killer.

Detective Joe “Preach” Everson is called to investigate the murder. The victim, David Stratton, is the town’s golden boy and high school quarterback. A modern version of what Preach used to be. Not only that, the boy’s mother is Claire Lourdis, a beautiful divorcée who Preach fell for in high school. She is also the main suspect in her son’s murder.
    
Despite the cloud of suspicion hanging over her, old feelings resurface between Claire and Preach, straining the detective’s relationship with his girlfriend Ari, a prosecutor in nearby Durham. As Preach delves into the secrets lurking beneath the surface of the town and searches for a missing girl who may have witnessed the crime, he must put his own feelings aside and pursue the answer to a terrible question: is a mother capable of murdering her own child?

Story Locale: A small, bohemian town in contemporary North Carolina, not far from Chapel Hill

Series Overview: After a decade tracking down killers in Atlanta, career homicide detective Joe “Preach” Everson returns to his bohemian hometown of Creekville, North Carolina, where he is asked to investigate one mystery after another.

“Green’s gripping police procedural introduces a conflicted detective who doubts himself at times. His fast-paced story, with its flawed protagonist, literary allusions, and unexpected turns, should attract Karin Slaughter’s fans.”—Library Journal STARRED REVIEW (reviewing Written in Blood)
