This fruitless search has cost Ruth her doctorate, a book deal, and her fiancé. But Ruth may finally have the evidence she is looking for.

As she solves Annie's mysteries, she also confronts her own, from the reasons behind her teenage sister's suicide to visions of a tragedy in her Minnesota town that she might be able to prevent"--
