Some secrets are better left buried.
She gets the chance to prove her capabilities when an urgent letter arrives from her frantic cousin Daphne, begging Sophia to come look into the suspicious death of Daphne's brother.
As Sophia begins to unravel the tangled threads of the case-with the help of a charming young policeman-she soon realizes that the murderer may be even closer to her family than she ever suspected.
