When a brutally murdered teenager is discovered in the woods surrounding a small Ohio town, Dr. Ben Stevensonâ€”the townâ€™s medical examinerâ€”must decide if heâ€™s willing to put his familyâ€™s life in danger to uncover the truth. Finding himself pulled deeper into an investigation with devastating consequences, he discovers shocking information that will shatter his quiet community, and force him to confront a haunting truth. With its eerie portrait of suburban life and nerve-fraying plot twists, The Absence of Mercy is domestic drama at its best for fans of Harlan Coben, Laura Lippman, Jennifer McMahon, and Lisa Gardner.
