Jo Peters, a former LA County district attorney, once thought that big-city life and glamor were her future. But after a brush with death and a truckload of murder and mayhem in LA, Jo decides that home, Mirasol, CA, doesn't look so bad after all. She is content to be the new city attorney for her home town. No more grisly murder scenes, just boring administrative law. A small-town pace, reconnecting with old friends. Life is good. 

When the body of one of those old friends is found, Jo finds herself drawn to the investigation. The police think Loren Balfour committed suicide. Jo thinks he was planning for the future - not suicidal behavior in Jo's experience. Jo's dogged investigation of Loren's death leads her through a labyrinth of small-town politics, grudges, more skeletons than she could have imagined, and a killer who is none too pleased about her efforts.
