Meet Joanne Love, for whom happiness is always just another death away, so long as the deceased were wealthy and there is a lost relative to claim the estate. As a genealogist turned inheritance hunter, She finds the heirs to unclaimed estates and picks up a hefty commission for her efforts. She has a talent for it. But she is on the run from troubles in her own life, looking for a new start, and desperate for some peace to sort herself out. Her plans are shattered when she finds herself drawn into the mystery surrounding the suicide of a young girl and its connection to a suspicious death nearly ninety miles away on the same morning. But the further she is drawn in to the secret lives of the victims, the closer she gets to unearthing a dark secret with deadly consequences in her own fractured past.
