Iris Dittmeyer’s well-ordered life is spiraling out of control.
A historic accounting of the 1921 Tulsa massacre has been stolen, and the museum director is pleading for Iris Dittmeyer’s help. White supremacists, the Rebels Rising group, are the prime suspects, but the case is more complicated than anyone suspects. Iris soon discovers poking the bear has dangerous repercussions. Meanwhile, the death count is still rising in Gunsmore, Oklahoma. In the last several months, a womanizer, a philanderer, and a sexual predator have died. When a local drug dealer is murdered, suspicion falls on the woman who assaulted him hours earlier. Did Dani get revenge for her father’s overdose, or is someone on a mission to punish the wicked? Iris needs answers. If she purges her home of Peter’s things, will it quiet her dead husband’s continuing chatter? Should she advance her friendship with the captivating Italian who makes mouthwatering croissants… almost as delectable as his kisses? And last on the list: Is her best friend the serial killer?
For Iris, a single wrong step could be disastrous.
