About the Book

After the death of his wife, and loss of his job, David Harwood and his son are forced to move back in with his parents in Promise Falls, New York. With so much falling to pieces in his own life, David is devastated to hear his cousin Marla has also faced tragedy - a miscarriage the year before.

Visiting Marla, David is shocked to discover she has a baby. But something is clearly amiss - she claims the baby was given to her by an ‘angel’. Even more distressing, the mother of the baby is found murdered. David vows to find out the truth about what happened, and slowly discovers that the murder is only the beginning of the devastating events befalling Promise Falls.
