"Never short of rich characters and timely twists, this new series will keep the pages turning." —Julie Cantrell, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Perennials

"Murder, corruption, and page-turning intrigue... characters that bring a vivid literary element... and create a strong emotional response to their tangled lives."

—Susan Cushman, author of Cherry Bomb and editor of Southern Writers on Writing

Quinn Sterling left the FBI for the Lowcountry, and no one questions her loyalty to Craven County or her willingness to do what it takes to nail the truth. When a school board member hires her for a domestic issue, the marital problem morphs into a treacherous stew of politics and corruption. Public school board squabbles turn into threats, then arson, then murder, and Quinn suspects that the crime spree is more sophisticated than the rural county's small-time politicians. Someone is willing to kill for financial gain, and Quinn recognizes a dark, sinister force threatening the lives of every board member... and every member of Quinn's adopted family when Jonah Proveaux, the Sterling Banks foreman and Quinn's childhood friend, steps in to shield an elderly woman from harassment and a land grab scheme.

Quinn is kicking a hornet's nest, only these hornets play with fire, death, and guns.
