A devastating death, a victimized mob princess, and an avalanche of lies. As the new owner of Stronghold Investigations, Bexley Squires struggles to solve her biggest mystery yet—one that hits far too close to home.
Amidst revisiting a painful past and planning for a potentially more painful future with Brewer Hawkins, Bexley's given unfortunate news that changes everything. While attempting to make sense of an unfathomable scenario, she's offered a substantial reward to solve a case that involves the upmost secrecy.
By the time she discovers an inanimate object is the key—pun intended—to something more substantial than a simple theft, it'll be too late. She'll find herself knee-deep in another family's war while trying to make peace with her own.
