Edie Swann quickly learns that
revenge can be a double-edged
sword. Solomon's unconventional
heroine is obsessed with uncovering
the truth behind the circumstances
that shattered her family. As events
spiral out of control, Solomon's writing expertly orchestrates a town's feelings of fear and desperation, which turns this tale into an electrifying thriller. Solomon just gets better with each
new outing!

Two decades after her father's untimely death, Edie returns to the small town of Redbud to learn the truth and extract vengeance. Since she's changed her name from Swanford to Swann, no one initially recognizes Edie as the little girl whose father was accused of embezzlement and committed suicide. Edie has a suspect list and, to make the guilty nervous, she sends black angels that are a miniature of her father's grave marker.

When the first recipient has a heart attack and dies, Edie is surprised, but a second death frightens her. Her attraction to Sheriff Holt Drennen is an ironic complication. Holt is suspicious and concerned when black angels turn up at death scenes. Is there a determined killer on the loose? (FOREVER, May, 416 pp., $6.99)
