紐約時報譽為矚目新銳驚悚小說家 繼暢銷書One of Us Is Lying之後,卡倫麥可瑪努再創佳作
聲名狼藉的昔日秘密,瀰漫著詭譎氣氛的返鄉皇后選拔 知道真相將帶來危險,秘密永遠只有自己知道最好……

  回音谷(Echo ridge)是一個美國小鎮,愛樂麗(Ellery)從來沒有到過這裡,但她卻對這裡耳熟能詳,因為這裡是她媽媽薩蒂雅(Sadie)的故鄉。如今愛樂麗和雙胞胎妹妹伊薩(Ezra)要回到母親的故鄉,和外婆同住。她們的母親正被法院強制納入藥物勒戒所,姊妹倆來此投奔外婆,而這座這如詩如畫的小鎮上,卻藏著不為人知的秘密。

  五年前的一場返鄉會中,決選的皇后慘遭殺害,回音谷小鎮因此聲名大噪。怪事不只一樁,二十三年前,愛樂麗的阿姨,也就是母親的雙胞胎妹妹,也在十七歲時離奇失蹤了,她也曾是返鄉皇后的人選,這倒底是巧合,抑或是這小鎮藏著甚麼不為人知的秘密?

  愛樂麗秉著對犯罪的好奇,悄悄地捲入這聲名狼藉的往日秘密之中。返鄉皇后的選拔、雙胞胎與失蹤案,這之間的關聯是甚麼?

  在當地的萬聖節主題樂園謀殺地(Murderland),發現了應屆的返鄉皇后得主,氣弱如絲地哽咽著。高中的科學老師橫死在小鎮的街頭。詭譎的氣氛歡迎著愛樂麗姊妺們。

  如今愛樂麗也被提名成返鄉皇后的候選人。隨著候選人陸續失蹤,危險襲來,她在無意間置身於危險之中,她所愛的人也將遭遇不幸。她逐漸發覺,鎮上的人們刻意隱滿事實,連她的母親和外婆也不例外。

  知道真相是很危險的。秘密永遠只有自己知道最好……
"When it comes to YA suspense, Karen M. McManus is in a league of her own. Fresh off her best-selling breakout One of Us Is Lying . . . the author has returned with a juicy second novel. It's even better than what came before." --EW

The New York Times bestselling "must-read YA thriller" (Bustle) from the author of One of Us Is Lying
Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery's never been there, but she's heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.
The town is picture-perfect, but it's hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone has declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.
Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she's in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous--and most people aren't good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it's safest to keep your secrets to yourself.
