A corpse exposes one of Charleston’s lethal secrets.

Can she chase down a crime spanning decades?


CJ O’Hara is finally getting a grip on life.

Smelling a hint of vanilla in the air and noticing scratches on the victim’s back, she suspects she’s looking for a murderess.


After the medical exam reveals poison from a rare plant, CJ sets off on the trail of mysterious DNA evidence leading to the depths of hidden societies. But when the homicide pattern matches multiple cold cases, the tough-minded investigator fears more than one killer could be lurking in the city’s darkest shadows.
