The most hated woman in Savannah, Georgia, is about to be
set free. Twenty years ago, Blondell O'Henry was
convicted of murdering her eldest daughter and wounding
her two other children. The prosecution argued that
beautiful, selfish Blondell wanted to be rid of them to be
with her lover.
Now Blondell's son, Niall, has recanted his testimony and
demolished the case in the process. Reporter Nikki
Gillette is determined to get the true story, and not just
for professional reasons. Blondell's murdered daughter,
Amity, was Nikki's childhood friend. The night she died,
Amity begged Nikki to meet with her, insisting she had a
secret to tell, but Nikki didn't go. Her guilt is
compounded by other complications––Nikki's
favorite uncle, Alexander, was the attorney who helped
save Blondell from execution. And rumors swirl that he was
one of her many lovers.
Nikki's fiancee, Detective Pierce Reed, is concerned she
may be compromising the case. As she digs for answers
during one of the most sweltering summers in Savannah's
history, he also worries for her safety. Everyone involved
seems to have secrets, from Blondell's old boyfriend and
his fundamentalist, snake–handling in–laws to
the cop who led the original investigation. And somehow,
the events of that tragic night connect to Nikki's own
fractured family. But now the killing has begun again. Is
Amity's murderer still at large, or is this a new, darker
danger? Soon Nikki will discover what really happened
twenty years ago, but the answers may come too late to
save her life. . . "
