Blurb: The Darkest Corners is a psychological thriller about the lies little girls tell, and the deadly truths those lies become.
There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened there that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them.
Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the faces of her demons—and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good.
Tessa and Callie have never talked about what they saw that night. After the trial, Callie drifted and Tessa moved, and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.
But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette—to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.
Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer—and this time, it won’t be so easy to run away
Erica’s Thoughts: Let me start by saying when the blurb tells you it is a physiologic thriller they are not joking……. Tessa and her childhood best friend were forced to testify in court at a very young age for a horrific crime. Both their lives were turned up side on that summer evening and everything fell apart after that. Tessa left to live with her Grandma after that summer, Callie stayed and kept moving forward with out speaking to Tessa again. Tessa has to come back home when her father gets ill. When Tessa and Callie reconnect now that they are older nothing and everything is the same. You can never escape the past. Tessa and Callie start to see that the past isn’t what they remember, and as the uncover new pieces they see they could have been wrong all those years ago, and could lose themselves and their friends if they don’t right their wrong.
