“Bones don’t float, no.”
In the quiet, coastal town of Apalachicola, the past is never far behind, and secrets don’t always stay buried.
When a young girl is attacked, Lt. Maggie Redmond draws on her own experience as a rape survivor to give the girl the help that she herself never got, but in the process finds herself doubting her judgement, her commitment to the law, and who she believes herself to be.
Maggie’s also increasingly confused about her feelings for town crime lord Bennet Boudreaux. If she really loves Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton, why is she so unwilling to walk away from her strange friendship with this enigmatic man with the startling blue eyes? What is the secret from the past that connects them?
The answers will turn Maggie’s world upside-down and make her question everything she thought she knew about herself and her past.
In her efforts to rescue a defenseless young girl, Maggie finds that maybe she is the one who needs rescuing.
