Charred; there are few better words to describe Adrienne King. She certainly didn't escape her childhood unscathed but if you scrape off enough of the blackened bits there's something worth saving. Adrienne has spent the past eight years attempting to move beyond the torment she survived, but it turns out you can't hide from who you are-or who you've been. History comes knocking in the form of one nosy investigator determined to find the answers to a murder that took place eight years ago, an investigator who has his crosshairs on Adrienne's brother. In order to protect her brother, she'll have to find him. In order to do that she'll need to dive into their mutual past. It won't be easy digging up all that she's buried but if there's one thing she can never forget, it's that she owes him that much.
