Tamara Hayleís past has come back to haunt herĖliterally. Sheís been plagued by terrifying dreams about Celia Jones, an old friend whose walk on the wild side led her to a horrible death. Celiaís teenage son, Cecil, begs Tamara to find his motherís killer . . . only to end up dead himself, stabbed through the heart.
The search for Celia and her sonís killer pulls Tamara deep into her friendís troubled love life, where everyone adored her but somebody held a murderous grudge. Thereís her bullying thug of an ex-husband; a handsome ex-lover who woos Tamara with charm and lies; and an angry, jealous woman who claims that Celia broke her heart. And those were just the obvious people with axes to grind.
Despite her better judgment and the admonitions of the police department, Tamara refuses to back away from the mystery surrounding her old friendís death and the tragedy that met her son. All clues lead to the past Tamara shared with Celia Jones, and Tamara fears that that past will threaten her own son. But she uncovers more than she bargained forĖand unearths secrets someone would kill to keep in the shadows.
