Description

Vicky Bauer is a woman who unwittingly gets involved in other people's business. Sometimes this gets her into serious trouble. Take Rachel for instance. When Vicky witnesses Rachel's abuse at the hands of her husband, Vicky offers Rachel refuge in her home. Weeks later, Rachel is found dead. Vicky is compelled to make sense of this young woman's story and to track down her killer. Vicky Bauer's methods of deduction explore not only the hard facts but also the convoluted road of relationship and family secrets, as she pieces together a fascinating tale of human complexity and deception.
