Ashleigh Bennett had decided to leave the past behind once and for all when she took a job working with Trevor O’Donnell and his task force in South Florida.
Unfortunately, the past has a way of following you no matter how far you go to escape it.
For Ashleigh, her past was littered with losses. First, the loss of her parents, and then her sister, Ellen.
Ellen’s was the most painful however, as the circumstances surrounding her death left her with many unanswered questions. Could she have relapsed into the world of drugs and put her unborn child in harms way like the police had assumed and did she have a reason to kill her husband?
Ashleigh was certain that she didn’t. But, after several years of her own investigations, she had made no progress in clearing her sister and she knew the only thing left to do was start over. Somewhere that people didn’t look at her like the poor little orphan or the sister of a murderous addict.
Though the investigations didn’t bear any results for Ashleigh, they did create doubts in others who had been close to the case. Doubts that led her past right back to her doorstep and put Ashleigh in the path of one man bent on keeping the secrets of his past buried for good.
Can Ashleigh, Trev and the rest of the team unravel the web of lies that followed her? Or will Ashleigh be buried with the secrets that had destroyed her family?
Some secrets are better left buried…
