As the assistant to her father, the county coroner of Silverton, Colorado, Cameryn Mahoney gets to witness all aspects of death, including the autopsy room. Yet somehow that feels easy, compared to her personal life. Now that her long-lost mother has made a surprise return, Cameryn's more confused than ever. Things only get worse when she and her mother pick up a mysterious young hitchhiker. Cameryn senses that the girl is running away from something, but before she can find out more, the girl is found dead-- a gun in her hand. Is it suicide? Or something even more sinister?
Mixing forensic details and ripped-from-the-headlines themes, Alane Ferguson makes her readers' hearts pound yet again with this edge-ofyour- seat forensic mystery!
