Overview

In this gritty crime thriller, a disturbing double murder in Upstate New York leads a detective through a maze of secrets, lies, and buried trauma.

When a young mother and her son are found dead on a church altar, investigator Valentina Knight is called to the scene. What Val finds is shocking. The mother, Gabrielle, is dressed in a white satin gown, with tree branches duct-taped to her hands, and a piece of tape across her lips. And what happened to the boy is unspeakable.

Initially, the evidence suggests a murder-suicide, but Val isn’t convinced. As she digs further into Gabrielle’s life, it becomes clear that she was trying to hide from her past. Soon Val realizes that everything comes down to one disturbing question: What really happened on the day Gabrielle’s twin siblings drowned in the family pool?

About the Author

Mary currently makes her living as a university professor of dentistry, focusing on forensic dentistry. In this capacity, she works on cases in which teeth are the main evidence. She has also testified as an expert witness in capital murder trials and before the United States Congress on the need for scientific rigor in the courtroom. Her experiences have shown how truth can be stranger than fiction. She has a number of published academic works, all with a forensic focus, and a portion of those have received national media attention with sources such as the BBC news, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. As an invited speaker, her talks center on forensic evidence and the cases she’s been involved with. She currently lives in Buffalo, New York, with her very supportive husband who cheers her on every day, and an exceptionally spoiled cat. Throughout all this, Mary’s life-long dream has been to write fiction. Her first crime novel is to be published November 2019.
