When New York author Tori Miracle visits a small town in Pennsylvania's Amish country, she uncovers a dark web of secrets surrounding the town's history. As corpses turn up, each with a single red rose nearby, Tori realizes she is the killer's prime target. In the maze of caves beneath Lickin Creek, she discovers an invention of Thomas Edison's reflecting his interest in communicating with the dead, and comes face-to-face with a killer determined to keep age-old secrets buried--forever.

"...think of the English village mystery, with its strange people and hidden memories and transplant it to Pennsylvania Dutch country, and you have the Tori Miracle series."
--Barbara Franchi,

--Faye Dasen, The Pilot --Southern Pines, N.C.
