When Lily stumbles upon the well-built corpse of a local body builder - his neck broken by a barbell - the town's underlying racial tension begins to boil over. The white victim was somehow connected to two unsolved murders of black residents of Shakespeare - and a dogged policeman is determined to stop the killing. But it is Lily herself who may have to decide whether to stay and fight for justice, or run away one more time.More
"Lily Bard is a complex woman who embodies many of the contradictions of the modern South - its dark side as well as its charm - and this suspenseful, deftly written novel will send new fans scrambling to read its predecessor." (Amazon.com review)

Good/Bad--depending on your taste in crime reading
- Kathi "Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy."
Kept on twisting and turning...so much fun!
Just when you thought you had it figured out...it took a turn to the unexpected.
Lilly herself is my favorite character as she is smart...never stops looking at life as a puzzle to solve, fights her demons and from the shadows solves the mystery in a tiny little town where everyone knows everyone else except the hidden heart within Lily.
My favorite scene happened when Lily let her guard down and accepted a mysterious "dectective" into her life.
Oh yes and I did!
