When Santa Barbara is rocked by two murders, Madeline Dawkins must race the police to find the killer, or she might be next.

"First class mystery " --Carlyle Clark, author of Children From Dark Houses

It should be one of the highlights of Madeline's career. As an event coordinator, a weekend-long birthday bash for the wife of a famous film director could help put her on the map across all of Southern California's rich and famous landscape.

Instead, disaster.

Expensive jewels go missing.

A dead body is found.

And soon after that, another.

Madeline will have to rely on her skills as a private investigator to put the pieces together. She and her partner, Mike Delaney, soon discover clues leading them to some very dark mansions...and even darker secrets.

A grim and terrifying chapter of Madeline's past has been reopened, and a soulless predator is now on a quest for vengeance.

But while searching for the killer, she soon learns that these bodies aren't random; they were meant to send her a personal message...

"You're next."

A HIGH PRICE TO PAY is the second installment in the Madeline Dawkins series.
