Publisher's Summary

When the body of famous actress Niki Francis is unearthed from its shallow grave, the small town of Medford, Oregon is alarmed but not shook. After all, there should be plenty of motives and suspects - Niki had fame, wealth, looks. The kill was targeted and premeditated, and it's about her celebrity...or so they thought. 

Whit McKenna is licking her wounds, working as a reporter for the local Medford rag. Fresh from a harrowing assignment for her previous post at the LA Times, which cost her her husband, Whit must pull herself together for the sake of her two daughters. The wound has hardly begun to scab when she's called to cover the murder, so she teams up with her best friend, medical-examiner Katie Riggs. Then two more victims turn up, completely disconnected from one another, and McKenna loses all hope of a breakthrough. 

Rather than clarity, the possible suspects and motives become scrambled. But time is running out, and each front-page article McKenna writes brings her closer to a killer who will stop at nothing to realize a deadly vision.

Beyond amazing....

for the first time in many years I have a book that I not only found engaging and exciting but found myself staying up just to finish. I couldn't stop listening! having a degree in Forensics I am usually able to guess who the bad guy is relatively quickly. when the bad guy was actually revealed I actually gasped out loud! to top off a phenomenal new authors book, new series was the narrator Kirsten Potter. the woman is amazing as a narrator and only made this book all the more enjoyable! can't wait for the next one to come out!!

Great story!

I thought it was engaging and interesting. The story kept my interest and I loved relating to Medford and southern Oregon! I hope to read another novel by this artist! My Librarian friend introduced me to this book and I am glad she did!
