Eric Lafferty returns to Redfort City a little too late for his father's funeral but just in time to get mixed-up in a mystery that involves Nola Lantri, Grayson Bryant, a dead girl, and a missing woman.

Emjay used to steal things—nothing big, just enough to get by—but after a terrible accident changes her life, Emjay has only one thing on her mind: revenge.
