|Locke returns with a heart-pounding thriller that interweaves two murder mysteries, one on Belle Vie, a historic landmark in the middle of Lousiana''s Sugar Cane country, and one involving a slave gone missing more than one hundred years earlier.|
From the Publisher:
When the dead body of a young woman is found on the grounds of Belle Vie, the estate's manager, Caren Gray, launches her own investigation into Belle Vie's history, which leads her to a centuries old mystery involving the plantation's slave quarters ? and her own past. 50,000 first printing.
"Ms. Locke has all the necessary elements for a resonant story about a seemingly modern woman who is forced to come to terms with the long-buried past. And she has a strong heroine. . . . The book's best feature is its plantation pageantry, along with the blindingly swoony reactions it prompts on all sides of the social and racial divide." - Janet Maslin 09/06/2012 "[T]he language of her storytelling is sturdy and absorbing." - Marilyn Stasio 10/07/2012
