Emily Rose Vandever is young, beautiful, and smart, but she has problems and doesn’t know how to solve them, or even where to start. Her parents have been missing for months and she has done the best she could, but that isn’t enough and she needs to come up with something soon.
Brad Fisher was photographing the lovely old houses in this remote area of Louisiana until he was mugged in front of her house. Now, stuck there with his injuries, he wants to help, but he notices the oddities: phones that don’t work, air conditioners that aren’t running despite the heat, and, more importantly, the things Emily is not saying.
Thrown together to solve the mystery that has been plaguing Emily Rose, their objectives are very different and it may require more of them than either one suspects.
