Sheriff Joanna Brady may be a working mother with a newborn child‚ drowning in paperwork and in need of a good night's sleep.... but nothing stops her when there are crimes to solve.
The discovery of bags containing the gruesome remains of two people leads back to a care facility with a dubious past and‚ perhaps‚ an even worse present. Meanwhile‚ an old Buick has plunged off the side of the mountain in the Coronado National Forest with its two passengers in tow. A note from the twisted wreck states that the pair took their own lives but the autopsy suggests otherwise. When two young women show up to feud over the inheritance‚ Joanna knows this is no ordinary suicide pact. She'll go all out to find the truth -no matter where it leads.
