As the house is renovated and a pool dug, a skeleton is found and identiWed as Martha Lawrence, a young Spring Lake woman who vanished several years ago. Within her hand is the Wnger bone of another woman, with a ring — a Shapley family heirloom — still on it. Determined to Wnd the connection between the two murders, Emily becomes a threat to a seductive killer…who chooses her as the next victim.
