For Sharon McCone, when one door opens, another shuts. In the midst of celebrating the joyous wedding of friends, she gets word that her father has suddenly died in San Diego. After making the sad journey home to help scatter his ashes, she also learns that her father quested that she, not any of her four brothers and sisters, be the one to sort through his personal effects. In a cardboard carton marked "Legal Papers," McCone will discover why. A highly confidential document, long hidden, soon provokes a violent breach between McCone and her mother and sends McCone searching for the truth kept from her about the past. It's a truth about four friends, a shattered love affair, and a violent murder. It's a truth that no none wants her to find...
Now, from a reservation in Montana to locate Shoshone relatives to tracking down other kin at a sacred Indian lake in northern California, McCone will encounter old family secrets and modern disputes, an environmental lawyer in desperate trouble, and a ruthless developed who's a bigot to boot. She will feel a widening reservoir of anger and fear opening up between herself and the people she knows and loves best. And when someone tampers with her car to leave her stranded in a hostile landscape and very much alone in a dark inner place, McCone may face both an identity crisis--and a killer--in a case that cuts close to the bone, transforms her soul, and threatens to send her to the grave.
