Summary
"On the surface, Chief Dove Carnahan is a true trailblazer who would do anything to protect the rural Pennsylvanian countryside where she has lived all fifty of her years. Traditional and proud of her blue-collar sensibilities, Dove is loved by her community. But beneath her badge lies a dark and self-destructive streak, fed by a secret she has kept since she was sixteen. When a girl is beaten to death, her body tossed down a fiery sinkhole in an abandoned coal town, Dove is faced with solving the worst crime of her law enforcement career. She identifies the girl as a daughter of the Truly family, a notoriously irascible dynasty of rednecks and petty criminals. During her investigation, the man convicted of killing Dove's mother years earlier is released from prison. Still proclaiming his innocence, he approaches Dove with a startling accusation and a chilling threat that forces her to face the parallels between her own family's trauma and that of the Trulys" --

Summary
Dove Carnahan (she was named after her beautiful but no-good mother's favorite soap) is the unmarried 50-year-old police chief of a rural Pennsylvania town. When a burnt corpse is found in an abandoned neighborhood, she assists the state police, including a former lover, as they try to unearth a killer. Meanwhile, a dangerous secret from her youth threatens to come to light when a man convicted of killing her mother 35 years earlier makes a startling accusation. This evocative mystery combines fast pacing and a twisty plot to create a compelling read that should please fans of strong, well-drawn female characters. -- Description by Dawn Towery
