Julie was twelve years old when her 17-year old sister was murdered and although a boy was tried and convicted for the crime, Julie blames herself for the catastrophe. Years later a letter surfaces laying the blame elsewhere and the case is reopened. This is a great story of secrets and lies both in the past and the present, a truly mesmerising tale.
Her family's cottage was a place of innocence for twelve-year-old Julie Bauer - until her sister was murdered. It's been many years since that August night, but Julie's memories of Izzy's death still haunt her. Now someone from her past is asking questions about what really happened that night. About Julie's own complicity. About a devastating secret her mother kept from them all. About the person who went to prison for Izzy's murder - and the person who didn't. Julie must gather the courage to revisit her past and untangle the complex emotions that led to one unspeakable act of violence on the bay at midnight.
