Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff’s Deputy Dwight Bryant are
back home in Colleton County with all their family and courthouse regulars, but
there are a few new faces as well. Lt. Sigrid Herald and her mother, Anne, a
well-known photographer, are down from New York to visit Anne’s ailing mother,
Mrs. Lattimore. When the group gathers for dinner at Mrs. Lattimore’s Victorian
home, they meet the enigmatic Martin Crawford, an ornithologist who claims to
be researching a new book on Southern vultures. More importantly, he’s Mrs.
Lattimore’s long-lost nephew, and Sigrid and Anne’s English cousin.
With her health in decline, Mrs. Lattimore wants to make amends with her
family—something Deborah can understand as she too is working to strengthen her
relationship with her stepson, Cal. But for all his mysterious charm, Anne can’t
shake the feeling that there is something familiar about Martin—something he
doesn’t want Anne or anyone else to discover. When a murderer strikes, Deborah,
Dwight, and Sigrid will once again work together to solve the crime and uncover
long-buried Lattimore family secrets. Download and start listening now!
