"In the winter of 1923, Professor Annalee Spain―a daring but overworked theologian at a small Chicago Bible college―receives a cryptic telegram calling her home to Denver to solve the murder of her beloved but estranged father.
For a young Black woman, searching for answers in a city ruled by the KKK could mean real danger. Still, with her literary hero Sherlock Holmes as inspiration, Annalee launches her hunt for clues, attracting two surprising allies: Eddie, a relentless young orphan searching for his missing father, and Jack, a handsome young Black pastor who loves nightclub dancing and fast cars―awakening Annalee's heart to the surprising highs and lows of romance and love.
With their help, Annalee follows clues that land her among Denver's powerful elite. But when her sleuthing unravels sinister motives and deep secrets, will Annalee outlast all that is secret that would make her a victim, too?"
