A woman's homecoming to a small town in Illinois turns into a dangerous and desperate battle for survival as she uncovers the truth about her past.
Estranged from her family for over twenty years and having blanked out many of the reasons that made her leave, after the death of her mother, Daydee returns to her hometown in Illinois.
Having inherited land and a cemetery business, Daydee begins to refamiliarize herself with the people in the town, many of whom regard her with suspicion. But as she finds our more about her mother and her affairs, she realises much has been hidden from her. Her properties had been used for illegal gains, clearly some of the town’s folk have been in on it, and her mother’s collaborators want everything kept under wraps.
Having worked as a call girl for much of her life, and wise to the ways of men, Daydee battles with her reputation and begins to make friends. But when she makes a chilling discovery in the cemetery and she unveils what looks like a grievous crime, she is in danger and will require all her hard-won courage and wits to win over.
