When the district attorney’s daughter is brutally murdered, her boyfriend is immediately arrested. It should be an open-and-shut case, except homicide detectives Ellie Macintosh and her partner Jason Santiago sense something off.
Randy Lane maintains his innocence, and his prominent family is at the center of a much larger federal investigation which raises more questions than answers. Blocked by federal agents at every turn, the people that MacIntosh and Santiago are able to question have a bad habit of soon turning up dead.
As the body count rises, the pressure is on to exonerate Lane and find the real killer before one wrong move by MacIntosh and Santiago turns fatal. And this time, there is so much then just their lives at stake.

Tommy thinks that if someone can figure out what happened to his step-sister, everything will go back to normal, so he writes to investigative reporter Maxine Revere. This isn’t the type of case Max normally takes on, but the heartbreak and simple honesty in Tommy's letter pulls her in. She travels to Corte Madera, California, with her assistant David Kane and is at first pleased that the police are cooperative. But the more Max learns about Tommy and his dysfunctional family, the more she thinks she’s taken on an impossible task: this may be the one case she can’t solve.
If Ivy was murdered, it was exceptionally well-planned and that kind of killer could be hiding in plain sight ... planning the next act of violence. Max believes the truth is always better than lies, that the truth is the only thing that matters to gain justice for victims and their families. But for the first time, she wonders if this time, the truth will kill.

Simon Puttock has not been bailiff of Lydford Castle long in this year of 1316, when he is called to a nearby village to examine a burned-out cottage and the dead body within. But it is the newly arrived knight, Sir Baldwin Furnshill, who discerns the deceased was no victim of a tragic mishap; he was, in fact, murdered prior to the blaze. Simon would be well-served by accepting further assistance from this astute, though haunted and secretive stranger. For a second fatal burning indicates that some harsh evil has invaded this once-peaceful place, and its hunger has yet to be sated.
