A Novel

BESTSELLING AUTHOR JULIE KRAMER ONCE MORE FEATURES INVESTIGATIVE REPORTER RILEY SPARTZ, THE “NEVER-SAY-DIE” SLEUTH [ROMANTIC TIMES], IN A THRILLING HIGH-STAKES MYSTERY.

When Riley hears that a young boy is trapped in a sinkhole located in the peaceful Amish farm country outside Minneapolis, her reporter’s nose catches the sweet odor of a TV sweeps piece. But not even Riley realizes just how big the story really is. . . .

Because the boy is not alone in the hole. There’s also a corpse—and it didn’t die of natural causes. While an area peopled by the upright Amish doesn’t seem a likely location for a brutal murder, Riley uncovers a dark web of fraud and deception driven by motives as old as the Bible: sex and money. She’s determined to stop at nothing to bring the killer to justice. But can she pull it off before anyone else— including herself—becomes the next target?
