In the South, the past can never be forgotten . . . or forgiven.

When Alain Darnay suddenly reappears on Hilton Head, Bay Tanner believes she and her former lover can finally settle into something resembling a normal life. But her tenuous peace is shattered by an innocent-looking boy with cold blue eyes who will force her to relive the nightmare of her husband’s murder, to face that terrifying summer of treachery, deceit, and death.

Cart Anderson, a recently orphaned teenager burning with resentment, wants to know how and why his father, Geoffrey, died, and he’s convinced Bay has the answers. But shortly after a confrontation with her in the parking lot of a glitzy resort hotel, the boy disappears. His empty car is found splattered with blood at an abandoned fort on nearby St. Helena Island, and suddenly Bay and her lover find themselves the chief suspects. When retired New York homicide detective Ben Wyler enters the case, the web of circumstantial evidence against them begins to pile up.

But what does the ancient black woman, whose ramshackle cottage sits next to the old fort, know about the boy’s disappearance? And why is the entire county so willing to believe Bay is guilty? Enlisting the aid of her former partner, Erik Whiteside, and an ambitious local reporter, Bay begins to unravel a plot so intricate, so devious, it could shatter not only her own life but those of everyone she holds dear.

From the gated enclaves of the Southern aristocracy to the dusty, echoing passageways of an abandoned fort, from the secret vaults of an offshore bank to the twisted mind of a vengeful child, Resurrection Road speeds to a deadly confrontation that will alter Bay Tanner’s world forever.

Book Excerpts

Read an Excerpt

Resurrection Road
Chapter One"You're not getting involved with those people again, and that's final!"I punctuated the shout by ripping the ball cross-court, a stinging backhand that should have left him staring in admiration as it whizzed by. Instead he dived to his left, just managed to get a racket on it, and popped up a lazy floater that nicked the tape and dribbled over to land six inches beyond my side of the net."Game!" he shouted, pumping his tanned fist in the air. "And set!"He dropped to his knees and raised his face and arms skyward, like Pete Sampras at Wimbledon.

Reviews

Praise for Resurrection Road

Resurrection Road should be part of your carry-on baggage on your next trip.”
--Chicago Tribune

“Wall has succeeded in creating what every mystery writer must dream of—a complex, utterly likeable protagonist whom readers want to spend time with again and again.”—Lowcountry Weekly

“This newest Bay Tanner outing is quite handily Wall’s best. For starters, it takes off at a brisk pace, building up to ‘here’s your ticket, ma’am’ speed by the final third of the novel.”—The State

“With her strong characters, tight narrative, and smart plotting, Wall shouldn’t have to worry about having a short career as a writer. But perhaps the most noticeable part of her fiction is the lush, rich settings provided by setting her novels in an area of the country she’s come to know quite well—the Lowcountry of South Carolina.”—The Beaufort Gazette

“This fast-paced mystery trumps everything else in Wall’s already impressive series. The action charges right out of the gate and never slows down. Of course, while her plots are patently thrilling, Wall has always hung her hat on her ability to bring the Lowcountry to breathtaking life. Interwoven through the tight plot are Wall’s incomparable descriptions of Beaufort, Bluffton, and Hilton Head. The locales may be familiar, but the author describes in such a way that even long-time islanders will see their home in a new light…remarkable…a truly gifted mystery writer.”
Hilton Head Monthly Review
