With the smell of burning wood and bricks lingering in the cool morning breeze, Johnnie Wise left New Orleans while her home was still smoldering. She had just been acquitted of murdering Sharon Trudeau, one of her former stocker brokers who had stolen a substantial amount of her nest egg. Broke with nothing but the clothes on her back and the shoes on her feet, Johnnie heads to East St. Louis to live with her father. But as fate would have it, car trouble along the way, forces her to stop in Jackson, Mississippi, where she meets handsome Paul Masterson, a roughneck evangelistic preacher who falls for her. Johnnie doesn't know that Earl Shamus is having her followed. Private Detective Tony Hatcher is watching her every move and reporting it all back to Earl, who dreams of being a big part of her life again. Will Johnnie give into the trappings of being a kept woman who wants for nothing? Or, will she reject his offer and try to rebuild her fortune the old-fashioned way?

You can depend on Keith Lee Johnson to take you to the edge of the unexpected and delivers.
Lucinda Gainey's performance is the perfect vehicle for the ride. I will look for more book where she is the reader.
The story invites the reader to hope and demonstrates that it is darkest before the dawn.
