True-crime writer Leah Nash is reluctantly drawn into a modern family drama with a very old story to tell.
Bryan Crawford’s murder is the perfect crime: no witness, no weapon, no indication that his death is anything other than the result of diabetes complications.
That’s what the medical examiner says.
That’s what the autopsy proves.
And that’s what the killer is counting on.
But when new evidence surfaces, crime writer Leah Nash is pulled into the investigation, and all bets are off.
Leah quickly zeroes in on the dysfunctional dynamics of the Crawford family. Beneath the happy fable they tell the world lies a dark tale of jealousy, greed, and revenge.
Bryan’s wife, his daughter, his sister, and his stepson each have secrets to hide. Every one of them have reasons to want Bryan dead. And they are all going to great lengths to keep Leah from the truth.
Then Leah makes a shocking discovery, and is propelled into a confrontation with the killer. It’s a fight she must win to save someone she loves. But time is running out. As raging flood waters surge forward, Leah acts. The consequences will change her life forever...and you will never guess how.
