Former Detective Chief Inspector Jackie Preston is bored and makes no bones telling her best friends - semi retired forensic pathologist Fannie May Washington and private investigator Claudia Oldham - just how uninteresting life in sunny Oasis has become.
That is, until the three friends discover an old journal in a hidden drawer of a thrift store purchase. Jackie jumps at the chance to finally have something more than golf to think about and is quickly drawn into the disturbing world of what she believes is a lovelorn young man. As she digs deeper she uncovers the shocking truth - the journal documents the murder of a young woman.
Cryptic notes which don't make any sense at first lead to the horrifying realization the murder victim was a novitiate at a local convent.
Unable to convince the Catholic Church or LAPD that a crime has been committed Jackie, Fannie, and Claude are compelled to hunt down the killer and bring him to justice. Just when they think they have the case closed, it slips through their fingers. But what happens next changes their lives forever.
This is the first book in the Oasis Cold Case Mysteries.
