Toussaint, Louisiana, is a sleepy bayou town where people know their neighbours and everyone feels safe - until the shattered body of a young woman is found at the base of St. Cecil's belfry stairs. But is she the victim of a tragic accident or something more sinister? Marc Girard doesn't believe in accidents. What he does believe is that the dead woman may be his missing sister. Now, he's coming home to Toussaint, where his wealthy family still casts a powerful shadow, in order to find the truth, no matter where it leads him.. or to whom. Medical examiner Reb O'Brien remembers the day Marc left her behind, just as she remembers the mysterious murders of two other young women a year earlier - crimes with eerier echoes of this one. With no one to trust but each other, Marc and Reb find themselves slipping down deep into the shadows of the Big Easy, where a town's darkest secrets lie waiting, and a killer is ready to strike another deadly blow...

About Stella Cameron

See more books from this Author
Stella Cameron was born and raised on the southern coast of England where she met her American husband at a party in London. After their marriage, she left England and went with husband Jerry to Washington State to make a home and raise a family. Like many authors, Stella began her literary career as a reader. As a young girl, Stella was a self-professed reading "addict", devouring all types of literature. She learned very early to retreat from the demands of others into a gentler world -- her own. As a child and a young adult, books saved her because they helped free her while they entertained her. Her love of reading always went side-by-side with her love of writing. Nineteenth-century author Jane Austen was a particular favorite, and Stella admits that she particularly enjoys reading and writing books set in the 1800s, as well as contemporary novels. In 1980, Stella decided she wanted to write professionally. She attended writing classes and wrote short literary fiction for a year. It was during this period that Stella discovered how well-written and intense romantic fiction could be. Using her newly acquired writing skills, she began to write contemporary romantic fiction for Harlequin Americans and Intrigues. After several years, she moved up to Harlequin SuperRomances. In 1992, she made the switch to single titles with her first historical, Only By Your Touch. She has also authored a series entitled Rossmara Quartet along with several other romance titles. Stella Cameron sees herself as an entertainer and historian who adds her perspective to contemporary values through writing.
