In the bucolic mountain town of Trafalgar, British Columbia, a young woman is found dead of a heroin overdose, her baby lying at her side. While this should be an open-and-shut drug case, restraint marks on the victim suggest that the death might not have been completely accidental. As the investigation into the young woman’s death—and life—grows, the case becomes increasingly personal for Probationary Constable Molly Smith and Sergeant John Winters. Only two things are known about the dead woman, that her first name is Ashley and that she has a three-month-old baby boy. Who was she? Was this just a drug deal gone wrong, or is there something more sinister at play? Smith’s mother, Lucky, has taken in the orphaned baby. Does he hold the key to solving his mother’s murder?

Meanwhile, Winters’ wife, Eliza, is considering accepting a modeling contract with the same resort development that seems to be ripping apart their close-knit community. Has the disagreement pushed a member of this quiet community to murder?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Engaging…Delaney explores the social dynamics of a small mountain community as well as deftly handling the plot’s twists and turns as it builds to a pulse-pounding conclusion.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Young Constable Molly Smith…is delicately portrayed by narrator Carrington MacDuffie… MacDuffie…portrays Molly’s newly growing confidence in her career, as well as her arm’s-length relationship with her former-hippie parents, who are humorously caught between their loyalty to their daughter and their instinct to fight the Establishment.”


  • “Molly, a dedicated cop determined to succeed in what is primarily a man’s profession, makes an engaging lead character.”


  • “Intertwined subplots, complex characters, and an easy prose style make this a great follow-up to Delany’s debut.”

    Library Journal

    " I listened to this book on cd's. Great story and reader. The pace and number of characters is perfect for an audio book. I "read" the first book in the series and enjoy the character development through the series. "

    " Oh man, this book was horrible. There were so many little details that didn't make sense. I think the author took every idea she ever had for a book and wrote Valley of the Lost. "

    " Read this one out of order but still enjoyed it. Like books by Rita Mae Brown one comes to know the characters that appear from one book to another. In this one a squalling baby is found next to a dead woman. "
