The second in Essence bestselling author Yolonda Tonette Sanders’s Protective Detective series featuring Troy Evans, this suspenseful novel shows the devastation domestic violence can cause and how sometimes, mistakes of the past cannot be undone.

For over thirty years, Detective Troy Evans has been haunted by the disappearance of Elana Campbell. The younger sister of his best friend, eight-year-old Elana stormed out of the house one August afternoon and that was the last they saw of her…until her body was found several weeks later off the Texan highway in a place known as the Killing Fields.

With no suspects or leads, the Campbells hire private investigator B.K. Ashburn, and Troy heads back to his hometown of Houston to assist with the case. While there, he reluctantly begins to build a relationship with his father, whom he’s spent his entire life hating. Meanwhile, Troy keeps running into dead ends on Elana’s case, except for a gut feeling that Elana’s disappearance all those years ago had to do with a member of her own dysfunctional family.

As Troy and B.K. begin to dig into the pasts of the Campbells’ relatives, they uncover painful secrets that could destroy relationships. And when the culprit is finally revealed, the discovery will leave everyone wondering if perhaps some mysteries should remain unsolved…
