A phone call at four in the morning is rarely a good thing--especially from the police.
When what began as a possible burglary turns out to be a particularly nasty murder, Sandra Deeson, the librarian who finds the body, is deeply shaken. Worse, this isn't the first time this has happened to her.
Now one of Sandras colleagues is missing. The police are at a loss as to how to proceed. There may be a clue in the painting someone left for Sandra--but that strange artwork brings back memories she's tried to keep buried. Or perhaps the answer lies with the famous artist, Sir Arthur Templeton, who has also received a painting that speaks of the past.
Two unidentified bodies, discovered thirty years apart, and the only connection is Sandra herself. Last time, it cost her dearly. This time, the price may be even steeper.
