Overview

Tai Randolph doesn't want to hear about homicide. She’s had enough of the dark and the dangerous, and decides some time out of Atlanta is exactly what she needs to put the recent spate of corpses behind her. It‘s a idyllic vision —selling her wares at the Savannah Civil War Expo, attending a few Confederate re-enactments, perhaps a little romantic rendezvousing with Trey, who has agreed to put aside the corporate security agent routine and join her for a long weekend in her hometown.

But in the South, the past is never past. It tends to rise again.

In Tai’s case, it shows up as her tattooed heartbreaker of an ex-boyfriend, desperate for her help. He spins a tale of betrayal, deceit, and a stolen Civil War artifact that Tai agrees to help him recover. Suddenly, Trey’s on the case too, representing a competing — and well-moneyed — client with eyes on the same mythical prize. As the lovers square off against each other, Tai discovers that her complicated boyfriend makes an even more intriguing adversary, revealing a ferociously competitive streak under his cool Armani exterior.

But where there‘s money, there‘s usually murder, this time involving the KKK and Tai‘s unapologetically unreconstructed kinfolk. As she unravels the clues to a 150-year-old mystery, she digs up secrets from her own past — and Trey’s — forcing a confrontation with a ruthless killer, and with her own willingness to do whatever it takes to save everything that matters.

Editorial Reviews

Robert Dugoni
“Tina Whittle is that rare writer who can produce exquisite mysteries. Her novels are a mix of Pat Conroy writing and Dashiell Hammett storytelling. In Tai Randolph she has created a unique and fascinating Heroine and with Blood, Ash and Bone, Whittle has established herself as one of the top mystery writers working today.”
Kirkus Reviews - Staff Reviewer
Tai Randolph, the cutest amateur sleuth to come along since Stephanie Plum stuck her nose in everyone’s business, rouses the ire of the KKK.... The plot is as deftly convoluted as ever (Darker Than Any Shadow, 2012, etc.), but this time, most everything takes a back seat to Tai’s rapture over Trey. And who could blame her? He’s one hell of a catch.
Booklist starred review - Michele Lieber
Tai Randolph relishes the idea of leaving her gun shop in Atlanta (where she's been involved in too much mayhem, recounted in the first two books in this series) for a long weekend on her home turf of Savannah, where she plans to be a vendor at a Civil War expo.... Whittle's snappy prose and nonstop action revolving around these fascinatingly flawed characters combine to make this series a must.

    Beware of Exes bearing tales of lost artifacts. Especially, a lyin' Ex, who cheated with your ex-friend.
    As the owner of a gun shop with patrons who participate in Civil War re-enactments, Tai Randolph finds authentic gear for her customers. To cover the expense of a pending audit with the ATF, she agrees to search for an artifact while attending the Southeastern Civil War Expo with her boyfriend, Trey. Their quiet visit to Tai's hometown changes with the involvement of Trey's employer. Then Tai discovers someone has stolen her identity and there are competing artifact hunters, including a more PR friendly version of the KKK.
    This was an excellent read with a fun plot containing surprising twists, edge-of-the-seat moments, and Tai and Trey's continued romance. All of which leaves the reader wondering -- when is the next book coming out?
