Tai Randolph doesn't want to hear about homicide. She's determined to put her recent entanglement in a spate of deaths behind her and decides some time out of Atlanta, back home in rural Georgia, is exactly what she needs.
But in the South, the past is never past. It tends to rise again.
In Tai's case, it shows up as her tattooed heartbreaker of an ex-boyfriend, desperate for her help. He spins a tale of betrayal, deceit, and a stolen Civil War relic that Tai agrees to help him recover. It doesn't help that her current boyfriend has been recruited to recover the same artefact for a different client.
As she unravels the mystery, Tai unleashes over century's worth of resentment, hatred and violence. And its personal. Dark family secrets will force her to confront a ruthless killer.
