A young girl's repressed memory holds the key to solving a murder in Sarah Andrews's terrific new novel featuring geologist Em Hansen",a clear-thinking, straight-talking heroine whose unabashed naivete is endearing" (The New York Times).
The unemployed Em is asked by her former boss at a Denver oil company for help with his daughter, Cecelia, in exchange for which he'll help Em find a job. She's desperate, so she's hooked.
Cecelia was the only witness to her mother Miriam's murder, but, traumatized, has blocked out the entire event. She blames herself for both her mother's death and the fact that the murder is unsolved. Em's task is to find out what happened. Her digging soon turns up a mysterious man. Who is he, what power did he have over Miriam, and where is he now?
Once again, Em becomes involved in a complex and dangerous case -- and once again, Andrews delivers a winner.
