a small California town that, in the mid-eighties, seemed idyllic until the
See-No-Evil killer shattered that notion. It took FBI agent Vince Leone and
a new technique called "profiling" to put an end to the trauma. Secrets to
the Grave brought Leone's teacher-turned-child- advocate wife, Anne, into a
central role. Together with Vince and local sheriff 's deputy Tony Mendez,
she solved the Oak Knoll murder with a particularly challenging mystery.
Now, through Leone's pioneering science-based investigative skills, Hoag
explores the early days of forensic police work. And through the chilling
case at the heart of Down the Darkest Road, she hooks ever more readers
into the meticulously crafted, all-too-terrifying world of Oak Knoll, where
the scariest secrets lurk in the most unexpected places.
