There were thirteen steps to the cellar. They were steep and they were narrow—but was a fall down them enough to have caused the twenty-seven deep lacerations to her aunt’s head?

Callie Harris travels from her home in Alabama to her aunt’s former mansion in Maine to unravel the haunting forty-year-old mystery of Dr. Laverne Harris Doss’ brutal death.

Why wasn’t a murder weapon found? Was her uncle justly convicted of the killing? Was his mistress involved? Or was the murderer the bearded stranger rumored to have arrived by train that night?

In the charming town of Richmond, located on the banks of Maine’s historic Kennebec River, Callie uncovers the community’s darkest secrets—a botched police investigation, a betrayed widow’s lie, a dead woman’s blackmail, and a wealthy philanthropist’s shame. The web of intrigue extends far beyond Callie's suspicions and its connection to her personal story pierces her to the core.

Read an Excerpt

Three weeks after her father’s funeral, Callie stood in front of the Richmond, Maine house where her aunt had lived, worked, and died. She took one picture after another, even crossing the street to capture the full view of the magnificent three story home. The stately, red-brick Colonial mansion still looked much like the pictures from the old newspaper article she’d found in the drawer. Four chimneys rose above the roof, and modillion cornice adorned the overhanging eaves. A white portico covered the front entrance. Zooming in, she could even see the shiny brass knocker on the red door.
