The storm took almost everything she had. Now, a dead woman may take the rest.
A widowed Galveston attorney, Mrs. Dash Gallagher, attempts to rise from the tides of the Great Hurricane of 1900 and make a life for herself and her adopted daughters. Dash’s world is destroyed once again when another body washes up on shore. The body is not one of the storm dead, but a murder victim who had been Dash’s client.
Because of her relationship to the dead woman, her reputation is ruined, her secrets exposed, and her children may be taken away before the adoption is final.
Dash dismisses the notion that she has fallen under a curse, despite the powerful and wealthy madman convinced that her disaster comes from an ancient evil that will only end when he is reunited with the source of his power, a magic casket. Dash must stop him from finding this casket before he enslaves thousands, but she risks getting murdered for her efforts.
If she is to prevail, she must convince a detective—a man who views her as rat poison in silk stockings—to help her. His skill at inductive reasoning enables him to know everything about the people he meets, but he gives away no information about himself. Will he help her, or will he stand in her way as she struggles to save her own life and her future?
