Whisper Ridge, a multimillion-dollar architectural project that was to host a unique program for paroled murderers, was the passion of Alexandra Sanabria, the daughter of a deceased Mafia don. But the program never got off the ground. The abandoned home now remains as a strange monument to dangerous secrets, kept off the market with taxes paid by a legal trust that Sanabria established just before she and her husband left town. While the couple's abrupt exit was unique, it was also not regarded as criminal until the bones of Alexandra's husband were found more than a decade later. Now, an ex-con who claims Alexandra s intervention saved his life wants private investigator Lincoln Perry to find her. Perry is less than thrilled. It is a task that will challenge both his abilities as a detective and his commitment to that calling.
