Not everything is what it seems in Lewisburg, though. The girls soon discover exotic herbs, hidden treasures, and dead bodies. Theres a serial killer in their small town, but puzzle-solver Heather finds herself plunged into circumstances surrounding neighbors deaths, a missing fortune, and a jewel thiefs hidden treasure.
Whats more, a puzzle left behind by the girls deceased mother may be the key to stopping a killer. Heather cant help but be distracted by strange happenings in her own home, though, and the kooky neighbors dont help either. Will she be able to solve the murderers game before someone else ends up dead, or will the killer get away with both murder and a family fortune?
William MacNary was eight years old when his father went to prison. Since then, he's carefully built a life as a family man and a private banker for the wealthy. He tries to forget that his father dismembered and photographed thirteen women. And he tries to forget those exquisitely composed photos of severed hands, heads, and feet that launched the "murderabilia" art market.
William has not spoken to his father for thirty-one years. No one at his tony bank knows whose son he is. Not until his wife's colleague is murdered and carved up in the same way his father would have done it.
All the evidence points to William. And only one person can understand the copycat killer—the monster William hasn't seen since he was a child.
