Summary

From her multiracial background to her unique talents in the world of art, Julia Rawson has always felt like a bit of an outsider. Now, as the very first female investigator working just outside of Washington D.C., for the Virginia Medical Examiner’s office, she’s continuing to live her life outside the norm—but this time, in the brave new world of investigating death. 
Just one year after the tragic events of 9/11, the twenty-seven-year-old finds herself navigating the incredible, often complex field of forensic science—lending her skills toward literally giving the deceased victims of crime a face. 
Facing death isn’t always easy. And her latest case, an unidentified body found in the mountains of western Virginia, has everyone especially perplexed. But at least she has her best friend Lisa to turn to—not to mention a certain forensic anthropologist, Dr. Michael Cuezze, who seems to understand Julia in a way no one else can. 
Written by a real-life forensic professional, this captivating mystery delves into Julia’s life as she struggles to adjust to her new profession—and works to bring justice to one of many faceless victims of homicide once and for all.
