Alexandra McCormick’s great-grandmother was a brutal serial killer in the early 1900’s. With her mother currently serving time in prison for murdering Alexandra’s stepfather, Alexandra decides to do her college research paper on whether or not the tendency to commit murder or other violent crimes may be passed on genetically.
Her research takes her to Savannah, Georgia, a city built upon its dead. There, she meets Chad Greenway, whose ancestor is Alice Riley, the first woman hanged in the state of Georgia. Alice was hanged for killing her abusive master. As a freelance writer, Chad agrees to help Alexandra with her research provided he can write a story about her quest. Soon it seems everyone Alexandra meets winds up murdered.
A very compelling read! I truly enjoyed this book! I have done genealogy research on my own family and I too found a distant relative from the 1800s who was a murderer, so I found this novel very interesting. I couldn’t figure out who the murderer was, but I was dying to know! I enjoyed the characters and the plot, especially the twist that I never saw coming! I found myself lost in this book and I look forward to what Ms. Trent has up her sleeve next.
