Private Investigator Bay Tanner is hired by a young mother desperate to locate her estranged family. Joline Eastman’s daughter is dying of leukemia, and all other sources for a bone-marrow transplant have been exhausted. A yellowing photograph and a handful of wartime letters are the only clues she has to offer. But it’s what she’s not willing to share that may hold the ultimate solution to saving her daughter’s life.

Meanwhile, Bay has her own family to worry about. A phone call from Lavinia Smalls, her aging father’s companion and caretaker, sends her rushing to the hospital. A few, whispered words, uttered in a moment of semi-conscious confusion, shatter her world and launch Bay on a quest that will redefine everything she thought she knew about herself.

Battling time, Bay and her late husband’s brother, sheriff ’s sergeant Red Tanner, search desperately for Joline’s missing family, only to discover that an old murder and a haunted woman from Bay’s past may hold the key to everything.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

 

It began, as so many of life's critical events do, with a phone call. One moment you’re working or reading or sleeping or shopping, blissfully unaware that your whole existence is about to be altered; the next, some disembodied voice plunges your ordered world into chaos.

 

Wednesday afternoons are generally quiet at the office of Simpson & Tanner, Inquiry Agents. We occupy a small space in a one-story building just outside the gates of Indigo Run Plantation, about halfway down Hilton Head Island.
