Everyone in town is buttoned up about the truth behind the little blue house on Thread Lane.
Louisa Henry can’t seem to get any answers about the mysterious house she runs by each day. Hidden behind brush, she’s seen signs of life but never catches a glimpse of the resident. Whenever she asks the locals about who lives there, they clam up.
During a run, Lou notices the front door to the mysterious house is open. The body of a man lies just inside, unconscious. As Lou arrives on the scene, someone else is leaving in a hurry. Lou stays with the man only to find he’s already dead, and realizes she might’ve just let his murderer run free.
As Lou investigates what happened, she uncovers the reason behind the man’s secluded status, as well as a heap of suspects who would’ve wanted him dead. Can she parse the truth from the decades of lies?
