Summary

An FBI agent must return to a traumatic case to protect her family and stop a killer in this small-town Pennsylvania thriller. 
 
Ever since she fatally disobeyed orders, Supervisory Special Agent Lucy Guardino has been chained to her desk. But now a mysterious letter has arrived, hinting that a case she closed four years ago pinned a string of rapes and killings on the wrong man. Lucy jumps at the chance to re-open the case—despite orders to leave well enough alone. 
 
Her unofficial investigation takes her back to the small town where a killer took his own life along with one final victim—a mother who left behind a grieving husband and son. Could those dramatic events have all been orchestrated to protect the real killer? Now, with the lives of her own family at risk and a desperate boy out for vigilante justice, Lucy must race to uncover the truth.

She’s become the beneficiary of her late husband’s estranged uncle’s will—a man she never knew—and inherited a majority partnership in the family’s company, New Orleans Fine Antiques. Valerie knows nothing about antiques, but she decides to learn the business and become an active partner. She’s also got her hands full fending off Collette, a woman who wants to sell the huge old house in the Irish Channel neighborhood that Valerie and her husband painstakingly renovated. Valerie isn’t interested in selling—but when her best friend, Lauren, drags her to a costume party for the women’s Mardi Gras club, the Krewe of Athena, she stumbles over Collette’s body, a jeweled dagger sticking out of her chest. In a rush of panic, Valerie recognizes the dagger from her shop—and before she knows it, she’s become murder suspect number one. Egged on by Lauren, she starts digging into Collette’s business dealings, and the deeper she digs, the dirtier it gets. Now all fingers are pointing at Valerie. In a desperate bid to clear her name, Valerie frantically tries to find who could have gotten hold of the dagger. But among a cadre of guests in full costume, it could be impossible to find the thief—and unmask the real killer.
