When nobody talks, the stones cry out
In the searing heat of a Virginia summer, two men plummet from a roof top to their deaths on the sidewalk below. One of them was a white police officer. The other, a black man with a murky past. Hundreds of people stood on the sidewalk below, yet nobody will say what happened.
The FBI wants a quick verdict--with or without the truth--and sends in rookie agent Raleigh Harmon.
Between the tight-lipped witnesses and the secrets hidden among the city's most powerful families, Raleigh's forced to use her forensic geology skills to uncover the truth. But can she solve this case before the city's simmering rage burns out of control?
And will her choices bring down everyone involved--including Raleigh herself?
Praise for the Raleigh Harmon series
"Giorello has won the Christy Award and has received two Pulitzer Prize nominations. When you read this book, you'll see why."
--Booklist, Starred Review
"Read her for her wonderfully descriptive prose, her killer plots or her well-drawn characters, but read her. You'll come away enriched in deep and plentiful ways."--The Richmond Times-Dispatch
