How far would you go to keep a secret?
One rainy evening, Nathan is surprised by an unwelcome face from the past.
Nathan has never been able to forget the worst night of his life: a party that led to the sudden, shocking death of a young woman.
Only he and Bob, an eccentric old acquaintance, know what really happened… and they've resolved to keep it that way. But years later, Bob appears at Nathan's door with terrifying news that threatens to tear Nathan's world apart. Because Nathan has his own secrets now.
Secrets that could destroy everything he has desperately fought to build for himself and his family.

Nathan seems to have it all — a loving wife, a beautiful home and a solid, if unexciting, career. But Nathan has never been able to forget the worst night of his life: a party that led to the sudden, shocking death of a young woman… the sister of the woman who is now his wife. Only he and Bob, an eccentric old acquaintance, know what really happened — and they've resolved to keep it that way. Until one rainy evening, years later, when Bob appears at Nathan's door with terrifying news. They're digging up the woods.
