1928: Pippa Ripley was rejected from the Bonaventure Circus as a baby. When she receives mysterious messages from someone called the “Watchman,” she’s determined to find him and the connection to her birth. Pippa’s search leads her to evidence that a serial killer has been haunting the circus train.

Present Day: The future of the old circus train depot rests on real estate project manager Chandler Faulk’s shoulders. As she dives deep into the depot’s history, she discovers clues to the unsolved murders of the past, and Chandler is pulled into a story far darker and more haunting than even an abandoned train depot could portend.


Customer Reviews

“Wright is a gifted and affirming storyteller whose newest novel will stun readers with its dramatization of revenge, brokenness, and the different ways people fight for the ones they love. This is an unexpectedly moving tale that brings dignity and depth to circus life. Drawing from the author’s personal connection to Wisconsin’s circus history, the tantalizing plot and immersive rendition of place are masterful. As Wright alternates between Chandler’s present-day story and interludes set in 1928, she captivates with compassion, eerie eloquence, and astounding intensity.”

— Booklist (starred)

“Wright’s entertaining latest (after Echoes Among the Stones) centers on two unsolved murders. . . . Wright braids the storylines nicely, building to a jaw-dropping conclusion. Readers of Colleen Coble will love this.”

— Publishers Weekly

“The intricate setup Wright delivers requires patience . . . but the ending is worth it. Fans of complex Christian fiction in the vein of Kristy Cambron and Michèle Phoenix will enjoy this title.”
