Grace Kimball finds herself in exactly this position. She is an unusual protagonist because, unlike most mystery heroines, she is not a thirty-something sleuth. Grace—like millions of baby-boomers who read these mysteries— just retired without a Plan A, B or C.She was a high school teacher in the small town of Endurance, Illinois, and her one retirement decision will endanger her life.Grace’s past has forced her to be strong. She survived both a college fire that killed her two roommates and also raised three children following the untimely death of her husband.Brenda Norris—a shoddy journalist and Grace’s former teaching colleague—is murdered in a suspicious fire, leaving an endless line of potential suspects. Grace is drawn into the investigation when she steps into Brenda’s job.As she researches the town’s past for a centennial celebration story that includes a cold case with three deaths, she explores the same path as the murdered Brenda. A second killing occurs, leaving no doubt that one of Grace’s neighbors is hiding a dark secret—a past he will kill to protect. While Grace races to meet a newspaper deadline, her friend, Detective TJ Sweeney, scrambles to find a killer. Grace’s investigation leads her toward her worst nightmare—a fiery death that has stalked her dreams since she escaped it in college.
