Things aren't always what they seem to be.
Psychologist-turned-hairdresser Valerie Urniak learned that lesson when tragedy struck in her building. What at first appeared to be a terrible accident turned out to be something else entirely.
Things aren't always the way you remember them.
Valerie's sister Jill, from whom she'd been estranged for sixteen years, wanted to burrow her way back into Valerie's life. Jill promised to share information that could provide Valerie with closure to events in her own past. By giving in to her curiosity, Valerie found herself in a web of deception that dated back to her teenage marriage and beyond… with fatal results.
