Former prosecutor Aroostine Higgins takes on her first assignment for the Office of Tribal Affairs as USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller's acclaimed series continues. Aroostine thinks her new job will be less exciting, but also less dangerous, than her work for the Criminal Division. She couldn't be more wrong.

A priceless antique that may be a counterfeit. A missing socialite. A desecrated corpse.

For a sleepy Southern Louisiana town, Belle Rue is home to an awful lot of secrets ... and desperate people who will do anything to keep those secrets.

Aroostine Higgins comes to Belle Rue with a simple mission: track down the weaver of a one-of-a-kind example of Native American basketry. But the when her trail collides with a local homicide investigation she and her husband Joe find themselves smack in the middle of two scandals--one that spans generations; one that dominates the headlines.

As Aroostine teases out the connections that weave the two tragedies together, her actions put her in a killer's sights.

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller is a former attorney who traded the practice of law for the art of telling stories.

She is the author of more than two dozen bestselling legal thrillers, suspense thrillers, romantic comedic mysteries, and forensic thrillers. All her work shares two common threads: pulse-pounding, tightly plotted action and smart, unlikely heroines and heroes.

Her books feature such diverse protagonists as a pint-sized attorney and mother of twins who’s trained in Krav Maga; a Native American government investigator who relies on her heritage to guide her when the chips are down; a Buddhist forensic pathologist who refuses to harm any living creature; and a trio of twenty-something sisters just starting out in their careers who find murder and mayhem wherever they go.
