Cindy Baker might be able to help. But Cindy has seen more lives than she's lived and isn't even willing to open the door.

Another cold case. Another chance for these three extraordinary women to find each other again. Secrets and skills will come to light, even if they weren’t supposed to.

They won’t be able to solve the case—or even stay alive—if they can’t trust each other.

In The Temple is the second book in the new Hangman’s Shadow series. All the thrills, chills, and uncanny clues you’ve come to expect from USA Today Bestseller AJ Scudiere.
