Publisher's Synopsis:
On the surface, Chief Dove Carnahan is a true trailblazer who would do anything to protect the rural Pennsylvanian countryside where she has lived all fifty of her years. Traditional and proud of her blue-collar sensibilities, Dove is loved by her community. But beneath her badge lies a dark and self-destructive streak, fed by a secret she has kept since she was sixteen.

When a girl is beaten to death, her body tossed down a fiery sinkhole in an abandoned coal town, Dove is faced with solving the worst crime of her law enforcement career. She identifies the girl as a daughter of the Truly family, a notoriously irascible dynasty of rednecks and petty criminals.

During her investigation, the man convicted of killing Dove’s mother years earlier is released from prison. Still proclaiming his innocence, he approaches Dove with a startling accusation and a chilling threat that forces her to face the parallels between her own family’s trauma and that of the Trulys.

Tawni O’Dell is a bestselling author of six novels, including Back Roads, which was an Oprah’s Book Club pick and a Book-of-the-Month Club Main Selection. She is also a contributor to several anthologies, including Becoming Myself: Reflections on Growing Up Female. Her works have been published in more than forty countries.  She lives in PA with her children.  You can find her online at

My Thoughts
Right at the beginning you will be drawn in by this book...  Dove has to climb down into a hole to get a victim of murder - a victim that has the top of her body burned - out before it is lost forever in the underground fires that are still burning.

To top the day off, the guy who murdered her mother years ago is now out of jail and comes to visit her at the station.  He still says he is innocent and he wants answers.

The characters are well laid out and it is easy to join in on their progress, especially the main character, Dove.  Who would kill a teenage girl, and what secret are Dove and her sister hiding?  Get a copy to find out!  I Rated This Book:  4/5 Stars ****
