From multi-New York Times-bestselling author Elizabeth Lowell comes another exhilarating novel of nail-biting suspense, reminding us that some family secrets are better left buried.
Carolina May - Carly to her friends - never knew her biological family. Yet, ironically, she makes her living as a family historian and has just been hired by the eccentric aunt of the multi-millionaire governor of New Mexico. The future looks bright, until things start going wrong . . . Then she learns the true meaning of fear.
Daniel Duran made a career out fighting for other people's beliefs - beliefs people died for. Then he came back to his childhood home in Taos to see if there was anything worth living for. The stir about Carly-May and her family history of the Quintrells amuses him - we're all survivors descended from survivors, so what's the fuss?
But Dan knows what Carly doesn't - in New Mexico, genealogy is a blood sport.
