Will’s father was just found dead in a pile of sulfur.
He was a retired cop who'd been working as a night security guard at the SulCorp sulfur mill. Now, to determine if his death was a tragic accident or something more sinister, Will must return to the place he swore he'd never set foot in again. Hope is a little town struggling in the shadow of a major metropolis, haunted by a history of death, violence and crime. And then there’s the girl Will never thought he’d see again, Eve. But falling back in love with her isn’t the only complication he will have to face while investigating his father’s possible murder. Could his search for the truth cause history to repeat itself?

“A twisty noir mystery that will keep even the most reluctant of readers on the edges of their seats.” - Kirkus Reviews
“Well-imagined and includes several surprises and turns. For a short novel, the story is quite robust and provides enough detail to fill in all of the gaps and then some. Highly Recommended.” - CM: Canadian Review of Materials
