Burial in Endwater

Lydia Speare never expected her brother George to go to college, let alone Harvard.  It was all made possible because of Jack Engels, the prosecuting attorney in their father’s murder trial.  When Jack invites George to join his son Lev on a groomed path towards law school, George suspects he’s stumbled across an offer he cannot refuse.  Lydia is much more cautious of Jack’s gift and the Engels family entirely.  She has agreed to work as a companion to Mary Engels, Lev’s mother who is dying of cancer.  The more time she spends in their Cambridge mansion, the more she realizes that their picture perfect family has some cracks beneath the surface.  Eventually it is through Lev that Lydia learns his father’s darkest secret, a secret that threatens to tear apart Lev’s family.  Lydia must soon decide: should she reveal what she knows about Jack and risk placing George in danger?  Or should she bury the truth even though it will bring blood and force her to live a lie?
