Kathleen lives out the legacy of her grandfather – she, too, works in law enforcement. With her training, she sets out to solve the cold case of her grandmother’s murder, but in seeking justice, Kathleen also discovers there is danger in working alone. Her best friend and fellow officer, Joe, helps her in this journey where they ultimately find the truth about themselves.
"Her prose reveals an intimacy with the South that can’t be faked, and this authenticity is part of what enables her to move so fluidly between gorgeous sensory images and scenes of horrifying emotional power. Also, it’s always nice when a crime writer actually understands police work. Susan Anderson is a natural storyteller."

"Susan Anderson's carefully crafted tale of an unsolved murder in an old-fashioned town with old-fashioned secrets is as nostalgic as it is ominous. Personally, I wouldn't be caught dead in the town of Ellyson. Then again, maybe I would."
