North Florida, 2004. Private Investigator Sydney Brennan cut ties with her nearest and dearest long ago and keeps her past close to her vest. But it’s hard not to reflect on her own estranged family when a woman hires her to look into her father’s prison-cell suicide. Since the dead man served over twenty years for murdering his wife, Sydney suspects it wasn’t guilt that killed him. What other sins does her client’s family hide?
Sydney’s client isn’t the only one concealing secrets. As Sydney uncovers shady evidence and incomplete reports, the determined PI makes enemies of those who want their misdeeds to stay buried. And though she barely survives a brutal attack, she refuses to allow a violent murderer to remain free.
Can Sydney cut through the lies and expose the coverup before she meets a deadly fate?
