When Bert Grayson was found murdered in a dark alley with his throat slit, the case was quickly closed due to a lack of evidence. A drinker and a fighter, he was considered just another cautionary tale—an unfortunate casualty of hanging around on the wrong side of town. But one woman was convinced there was more to the murder than met the eye. Lillian Grace, a beautiful but narcissistic barmaid trapped in a life of misery, was sure she knew who’d murdered the man she loved, but she couldn’t get anyone to listen. In her letters to Bert’s sister, she warned her not to trust the police, convinced that they were part of a larger cover-up. Now, fifty years later, editor and researcher Lee Perkins is introduced to these letters by retired FBI friend Miranda Witherspoon, and he is instantly compelled by the mysterious Lillian, who claims to be the key to unraveling a mystery half a century old. If his experience has taught him anything, it is to follow where the trail leads him, especially when his suspicions and the evidence seem to collide. But time doesn’t stop for anyone, and it will take plenty of dogged determination to discover the secrets of this long-buried case—secrets that some have taken to their graves and others have spent decades attempting to forget or protect. This fast-paced murder mystery follows the inquisitive Perkins as he works to rewind the clock, searching for ways to separate the truth from the lies, and bring Bert Grayson’s true killer to the justice he deserves.
