As an early summer heat wave beats down on Alpine, Emma Lord and her staff at the Alphne Advocate are treading lightly. For unfathomable reasons, House and Home editor Vida Runkel refuses to speak to anyone. So when a peculiar young woman walks in claiming her parents have been murdered and she's in mortal danger, it fits right in with the craziness. When Vida vanishes without a word and a male body, dead too long to identify, surfaces at the town dump.
