“There are many reasons why Brandilyn Collins’s books repeatedly top the ‘best of’ lists year after
NASHVILLE – Amaryllis, Mississippi is a scrappy little town of strong backbone
and southern hospitality. Its citizens are friendly, its families tight. On the surface
Amaryllis seems much like the flower for which it’s named—bright and fragrant.
But the Amaryllis flower is poisonous.
In the past three years five unsolved murders have occurred within the town. All
the victims were women, killed in similar fashion in their own homes. And just two
nights ago—a sixth victim.
Now three terrified women are sure they know who the murderer is—someone
dear to them. Unaware of the others’ suspicions, each woman must make the
heartrending choice to bring the killer down.
But each suspects a different man.
Gone to Ground (B&H Fiction) is the latest
suspense by Brandilyn Collins (Over the Edge, Deceit, Exposure). As Brandilyn’s 23rd book, this is her
first set in the South. “To research this book, I traveled to Jasper County, Mississippi, where my fictional town is set,” says Collins. “I
met people, interviewed them, and walked the exact area where my town of Amaryllis is placed. I love placing
suspense in small towns, because there, everybody thinks they know everything about everybody. They don’t.
The secrets just run…deeper.”
