Fjallbacka resident Christian Thydell is a literary rising star. His novel, The Mermaid, is being heaped with accolades. Erica Falck shares a publisher with him, and when Christian begins receiving threatening letters, Erica, pregnant with twins, shares her concerns with Gaby von Rosen, their mutual publisher, and with her husband, Detective Patrik Hedstrom. Patrik is juggling a slew of cases, working too hard to really take notice, and Gaby feeds the story to the media to boost Christian's book sales. Then Patrik's missing-person’s case turns to murder and other close friends of Christian's are targeted. Erica is baffled. What is keeping them all from talking? What secret are they willing to take to their graves rather than see revealed? Only Christian knows the identity of the warped mind behind the letters; in order to protect his family he's decided he's going to give her exactly what she wants. And for Erica, tragedy is about to strike closer to home than she ever thought possible. – Paula Longhurst
