Two decades ago, Gordon Spangler murdered his mother, his wife, and their two kids…and disappeared without a trace. His daughter was bestselling true crime writer Garner Quinn’s childhood best friend. The killings have haunted Garner ever since. But now Spangler has emerged from the shadows to kill again…and Garner is determined to find him, risking her life to avenge the ghosts of her past.
Jane is scriptwriter, award-winning playwright, and the author of four thrillers, including Graven Images, the first of three adventures featuring true-crime writer Garner Quinn.
Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he’s thrilled to hear about his sister’s new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy.

After all his work to get clean, Lyle’s been pumped full of poison—and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene.
Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they’re concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering’s murder has run out of chances...
