A killer is loose in an upscale Sacramento neighborhood. He murdered Sarah Wagner’s wealthy young Aunt Caro, but the closed-minded detective working the case has already decided either Sarah or her cousin Laura committed the crime. He just doesn’t know which. Both cousins, strong women, are beneficiaries of Caro’s will and neither have alibis for the night Caro was killed.

To save herself and her cousin, Sarah has no choice. She has to put aside her mind-numbing grief for her beloved aunt and focus on unraveling the mystery of Caro’s death. She’s a smart woman, but this will take a depth of courage she’s not sure she possesses because the killer may be coming after her and every move Sarah makes seems to increase the odds that one of the people she loves is the killer.
