A Callie Morgan and Carolina Slade crossover! (A standalone mystery)
Regret has become ex-Police Chief Callie Jean Morgan's constant companion. Her half-assed, "good ol' boy" replacement in the town of Edisto deepens her guilt at having abandoned her citizens, her officers. When her friends Carolina Slade and Wayne Largo arrive unannounced and determined to uncover why the hell Callie gave up her badge, the group is pulled into a mystery they shouldn't have to solve-but no one else seems to care that the Edisto Witch has turned up dead behind the cemetery.
In fact, Callie and posse have caught the new chief in a lie about the death.
She'll have to decide whether to stay safely retired, save Edisto from an unforeseen criminal element, or take that job offer in her hometown...
The dead still speak to Callie Jean Morgan. Whether she's on the job or not.
