Forensic geologist Raleigh Harmon unravels mysteries in her hometown of Richmond where things are never quite what they seem. Raleigh's exemplary service in Seattle opened the door for her disciplinary transfer to be lifted, allowing her to return to her home FBI field office in Richmond, VA. A civil rights case turns out to be much more complex than anyone thought when Raleigh is forced to go undercover in a drug trafficking case. Things aren't any simpler at home. Raleigh's old friend DeMott wants her to find time for things outside of her FBI work: friendship and maybe something more. Raleigh will have to rely on her sharpest skills--and the faith that is slowly returning to her--to navigate her way through these clouds.
I have fallen in love with Raleigh Harmon. Raleigh is a FBI agent trying to catch the bad guys with little help from the "good" guys. Her "realness" in her various duties keeps drawing me in, causing me to think about the real struggle to walk out our convictions while living in this fallen world. Her love for her eccentric or emotionally damaged mother, her love for their broken & addicted boarder all make Raleigh a character that is admirable and real. I'm hooked!
