Everybody dies. Kate Bennett knows that. But it was never supposed to hit this close to home. Never. Horribly, she loses her forty-one year-old husband, Pete, a Pastor growing a fine church in Orlando, Florida, to a sudden heart attack.
After the funeral, Kate is faced with two realizations. She’ll have to vacate the church’s parsonage, leaving her, her two teen-aged children, and her grandmother without a place to call home. The second dilemma is far more subtle, but growing steadily. Her anger has a strange new life.
A knock on her door addresses the first issue. The second isn't so easily solved.
Kate’s old boss, Caleb Moore, wants Kate to come back to work for him as an investigator in his bail bonds firm, something she did extremely well, but hoped she’d never have to do again. At first, she refuses, even after he explains they have an opportunity to solve a thirty-five-year-old cold case murder of three teenagers that could pay them a cool million dollars.
She eventually accepts the offer, believing that God hasn’t taken care of her and her family, so it’s up to her. She doesn’t want or need His help.
Kate and her family arrive in Northern Michigan to begin work. But after only hours in Cedarview, Michigan, she discovers there are those who don’t want the case reopened, let alone solved. Murder is still murder and some will do anything to make sure that fact stays hidden. Kate is determined, but her adversaries are willing to steal everything from her to keep their secret, even her life. The conclusion will set you back, the lesson will change your life.
