Having survived an impoverished, dysfunctional childhood herself, Calla had worked hard to rise above her inauspicious beginnings. She went to college, became a high school English teacher, and bought her own home. But after her professional reputation was tarnished by an ill-fated affair, the mortification was too much for her. She promptly quit and dedicated herself to the odd combination of sobering up and cocktail waitressing in a local bar.

Just as she seemed to be hitting her stride in this newly crafted life, a car accident killed her only sibling, Jemma. With no one else reliable to take Jemma’s children, they came to live with Calla. Max, age 2 ½, and Samantha, age 16, have different fathers, both of which are absent. The children have lived with Calla almost a year when strange occurrences begin to point towards the frightening truth of Max’s mysterious parentage.

Aided by the emotionally reserved Officer Tyler Burns, and a quirky subset of characters, Calla unravels a story that ends in violence and retribution.With a compelling tone located somewhere between Janet Evanovich’s spunky humor and Patricia Cornwell’s bleak intrigue, this novel features a likable female protagonist that will win many a reader’s heart. Calla Travis is smart, tough, sassy, and wounded. She has a sharp tongue and a warm heart. Along with the motley assembly of vibrant characters, and a setting in the current “hot spot” of Portland, Oregon, the book moves at a brisk pace and keeps the reader guessing along with Calla.
