“Tell me, Carlee… why did you deserve to live?”
When a dead body is discovered in Harborside with a gruesome message tied around its bruised neck, Carlee realizes the childhood trauma she thought was over has come back to haunt her.
It’s been more than a decade since a serial killer slaughtered Carlee’s eighth-grade class—including her twin brother—only to vanish into thin air, leaving Harborside, Carlee’s once-beautiful lakeshore hometown, haunted by the memories of dead children who will never find true rest.
Now in her late twenties, Carlee is a successful—if eccentric—private investigator in downtown Chicago.
But when the body of a popular high school volleyball player is discovered in Harborside, Carlee knows she must confront the horrors she left behind.
As she races against time to catch the killer, she finds herself in a deadly game of cat and mouse. More bodies pile up, each accompanied by a cryptic note that seems to taunt her.
It’s clear the Eighth-Grade Killer knows she’s back in town, and they’re coming for her to finish their macabre mission.
Can Carlee finally bring the notorious killer to justice and stop the killings, or will they claim her as their next victim?
The Eighth-Grade Killer is the first book of Katy Pierce’s Harborside Secrets unforgettable mystery series, where the danger is real, and the stakes are deadly.
