Du sol au plafond, la maison est maculée de sang. À l'évidence, plusieurs meurtres ont été commis là. Il y a cependant un problème : aucun cadavre n'est retrouvé sur les lieux. Que sont devenus la mère et ses deux enfants ?
Pour Eve Ronin, cette affaire est un baptême du feu, l'enquête de tous les dangers. Fraîchement nommée inspectrice en chef à la criminelle, première femme à occuper ce poste, elle n'a droit à aucune erreur. Tels des vautours, ses collègues masculins et les journalistes guettent le moindre faux pas.
Mais alors qu'elle est sous le feu des projecteurs, Eve s'enfonce peu à peu au coeur des ténèbres, dans une enquête où les petits secrets d'une famille apparemment sans histoires sont mis à nu. Dans un monde dangereux où il ne faut pas croire tout ce que l'on voit, Eve pourrait bien, elle-même, devenir une victime...

Vincent Zandri, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author
Tout semble sourire à Kyle Broder, jeune éditeur dans une grande maison d'édition new-yorkaise. Lorsque Kyle est contacté par William Lansing, son professeur à l'université, il est ravi et décide de présenter son mentor à sa petite amie, Jamie. À cette occasion, William propose à Kyle le manuscrit d'un texte sur lequel il travaille depuis de nombreuses années.
D'abord enchanté à l'idée de le publier, Kyle est rapidement choqué par la perversité du récit, qu'il abandonne après en avoir lu quelques pages. Mais lorsqu'il en refuse la publication, William entreprend de ruiner la vie de son éditeur, s'en prenant successivement à son chat, sa copine et son auteur vedette.
Kyle est alors obligé de se replonger dans le roman de William, Devil's Hopyard, et découvre que le livre fait sinistrement écho à l'histoire de la disparition non élucidée de sa petite amie à l'université. Et qu'il ressemble cruellement à la confession d'un criminel.
Un thriller redoutablement efficace, un terrifiant jeu de piste littéraire entre American Psycho et Le Silence des Agneaux
