Amid the evolving conflicts, she resolves to reconstruct her new life and find happiness. Detective Chris Reed is equally resolved to solve the murders as well as Sorrel’s secrets. Neither of them suspect where the steps of this dance will lead, but they are too stubborn to sit this one out.

Instead, she discovers murder, mystery, terror, and family secrets which once again threaten to topple her existence. What is real? Who is genuine? With her usual tenacity, she follows the trails of deception and terror. What she discovers will change her world forever.
