Close to Home

Clarence is dead. Was it a murder, suicide or something far
more chilling?

Close to Home is a novel of mystery and intrigue. The sudden death of popular classmate Clarence has a wealthy and indulgent group of friends suspecting that he didn’t take his own life. Their disbelief evolves into obsession as they make it their mission to uncover the true cause of his death and what they believe to be a homicide.

At first it’s unclear whether their preoccupation with Clarence’s death is a symptom of boredom, or whether they suspect one of their friends as a killer. But when two more deaths occur within their circle, it becomes apparent that the killing is just the beginning of a strange, chilling series of events that will uncover the once close-knit group’s best-kept secrets.

The mystery unfolds through multiple character narrations offering the reader an insider account of the lies and secrets that both create and destroy the relationships within this circle of friends.
