Tess Carver was victim to a brutal, ritualistic murder. Strange symbols were cut into her body, which was found in a ring of trees under a dark sky.
The police seem to have the case wrapped up. They’ve imprisoned Gunner Bray, head of the Clayton Society–called a cult by some. The Clayton Society owns the land, and who else but crazy cult members would butcher a woman this way?
But the Clayton Society has money to burn, and they’ve come to blond private detective Ivy Stern for help. They want her to clear Gunner’s name and find the real killer. Ivy takes the case. She’s good with murder, and she’s determined to bring Tess’s killer to justice.
Even if it really is Gunner, after all.
