about this item
With a flash of blinding headlights and the scream of metal on metal, Nell McGraw’s husband Thom is killed and her life is shattered. Now she’s alone in Thom’s Mississippi hometown, trying to care for her grieving children while returning to work as the publisher of the Pelican Bay Crier, the newspaper Thom’s grandfather founded.
When Nell is called to a site where human bones have been found, she’s determined to see the guilty parties receive the justice they deserve. But in Pelican Bay, the stories of the past may be too dangerous to be told. Threatened by the men who want their secrets to stay buried and the family of the drunk driver who killed Thom, Nell finds that if justice is to be served, it will come with a deadly price.
