In the murky swamps of central Florida, a boy vanished on the way home one night.

No one heard his screams.

No one saw him struggle.

And the police have no answers.

Can one man's visions reveal the truth?

From international award-winning author, Sandie Will, comes a psychological thriller that dives into the depths of a man's struggle with the events of the present that are conjuring up the pain from his past.

At age fifteen, Adrian Webster lost his younger brother in a tragic accident. He tried to mourn. He tried to move on. But all he could do was bury the pain.

Ten years later, his best friend’s son, Wyatt, vanishes while riding his bike through Green Swamp in Central Florida. Adrian's friend has already lost his wife, and he doesn’t want him to suffer the pain of losing a child, making Adrian obsess over finding Wyatt. So obsessed that he’s plagued by visions. Ones that creep into the corners of his eyes. Ones that reveal the truth. And ones that force Adrian to choose between his friendship and unleashing the memories of the past before Wyatt is gone forever and Adrian loses the one thing he loves most in life—his new family.

Readers are already saying: "A riveting page-turner!" "I couldn't stop reading!" "This book kept me on the edge of my seat!"
