Part of the Death and Damages multi-author box set
They each had secrets; one of those secrets got them all killed
The Oliver family is falling apart at the seams. Secrets, lies, anger, resentment were tearing them apart and causing them to live separate lives even as they lived together in the same house. One of those secrets has brought a killer to their door and the entire family is about to pay the ultimate price, death.
Detective Paige Hood feels an affinity to the deceased Oliver family because just like them she and her husband also have two adopted daughters. The more she digs into the family’s lives the more she starts to believe that the adoptions were the root of their problems and begins to worry that the same fate will befall her and her family. With each new thread they discover Paige and her partner get pointed in a new direction. If they can’t unravel them all and find the killer more people will die.
