Sam Casey is no longer a cop but finds it hard to stay away from crime scenes, especially those where victims have died violently, and where the killers are still unknown. Sam is the only one who can bring the victims justice.
Centuries-old skeletal remains of Native Americans along with artifacts are discovered during the construction of a downtown office building. Sam has a hard time deciphering her continual visions of two moons and the sound of gravel crunching until she realizes the two moons are headlights. The Chasen Heights medical examiner follows her hunch and discovers that one of the victims died three years ago.
Sam has more than a passing interest in the case. A family friend is in jail for threatening the construction workers. Sam’s mother is not forthcoming about artifacts that are missing from the dig site. And her husband, Jake Mitchell, has a hard time explaining to the chief of police how the missing artifacts ended up in his garage.
Elton Breyton III, whose construction company is on a tight timetable, tries to pull strings to remove the archeologists. Why the rush? Could it be that he knew the victim was his young wife, Amanda, who left him three years ago for another man? Bryce Breyton resented his father’s remarriage but can’t find anyone to verify his whereabouts. Nora Breyton despised the beautiful, young woman who broke up her family.
Jake likes money motives and there are enough to peg all three Breytons for the murder. Sam likes passion motives. If Amanda was running off with a new man at the time of her death, who was he? More importantly, where is he now?
The more Sam digs into the case, the more confusing it becomes, because she is no longer hearing just one voice.
