A hidden madness long buried …
Cage Foster is finally getting his life on track when a dusty skeleton is discovered in Ironwood, the antebellum home he’s caring for. The unearthing of two additional fresh bodies quickly puts Cage into the middle of a nightmare that could land him on Mississippi’s death row. The only person certain of his innocence is a pushy Yankee newcomer who talks too fast and still believes in the romance of the old South.
Dani Evans intends to restore Ironwood to its former glory while she rebuilds her life. Death, hidden treasure, and falling for a murder suspect weren’t part of the plan. But the lure of Ironwood’s infamous treasure cache convinces Dani the treasure is the motive for the murders. She fights to find the truth before Cage is arrested, but her search for answers will uncover a descent into madness that should have stayed buried.
