Vultures are circling over the swamp. While jogging, Dr. Eric Darcy discovers the body of a patient’s husband, the father of a baby about to be born by surrogate.

Concern for the widow draws Eric into the investigation. Was photographer Wes Choate murdered because he was cheating on his wife, or was he using his photos to blackmail someone? And why has the surrogate mother suddenly developed an antagonism toward Wes?

Assisting his sister-in-law, a private investigator, Eric struggles to make sense of seemingly random clues while protecting his patient from mounting danger. The puzzle pieces snap together in a fast-paced climax that could cost the obstetrician his life.

USA Today bestselling novelist Jacqueline Diamond, author of The Case of the Questionable Quadruplet, interweaves a medical setting and memorable characters in the second Safe Harbor Medical mystery.

“A very clever mystery where emotions and feelings ran deep making it a truly beautiful read.”—Pauline Michael, NightOwlReviews.

"Connie Shelton gets better with every book she writes." -- The Midwest Book Review

"Charlie is slick, appealing and nobody's fool--just what readers want in an amateur sleuth." -- Booklist

Charlie, Drake and their dog Rusty want a little time away from it all. A cozy cabin, good books, a little fishing at the lake. It's what Charlie needs to relax and enjoy herself.

But the town of Watson's Lake, New Mexico, has a little unsolved mystery. Four years ago a showplace home--tucked away in the mountains above the lake--blew sky high. A young woman died. The owner of the home disappeared the same day.

His gold-digging wife wants the insurance money; his daughter wants him to come home. And Charlie can't resist investigating. As she sorts out the clues she finds that the citizens of this little mountain town--including the sheriff--have loads of secrets. The missing homeowner's life is an intricate puzzle and Charlie is determined to piece it together.
