Raveled - a mystery thriller by Anne McAneny


RAVELED… a pulse-pounding thriller that sends a jaded daughter back to the town and the deadly night that ripped her young life apart.

Allison Fennimore doesn't want to return to her rotten apple of a hometown, especially with the shadow of two murders hanging over her family name. Despite her father having paid the ultimate price for killing a young girl and a teenage football hero, forgiveness doesn't come easily to the locals of Lavitte, North Carolina. They hold resentment close and deep-rooted falsehoods even closer.

At the behest of her imprisoned brother, Allison ventures home during the victims' high school reunion to confront those who may have lied. She digs into the whereabouts of the last person to see her father before his arrest. She questions the rocky alibi of the football hero's best friend. She rediscovers an old classmate who possesses pertinent information but now resides in a psychiatric facility. And when she refuses to worship at the base of the pedestal upon which one victim has been hoisted, she incurs the wrath of several powerful people in the tangled town, including her own mother.

In this captivating tale of warped bonds and twisted loyalties, the truth of a deadly childhood night is finally revealed, but Allison may have bitten off more than she can chew. Will she lose her own life just as she's discovering what it means to be whole again?
