A LIFE FOR A LIFE
by Lynda McDaniel
Laurel Falls, N.C., 1985: I was done with being a crime reporter in Washington, D.C., tired of all the violence. So I packed up and moved to the small town of Laurel Falls, N.C. It looked like heaven to me—ancient mountains brimming with tall trees and songbirds, peace and quiet. Until I found the body.
The sheriff took the easy way, calling it a suicide. No way. I’d found that young woman, and I knew she hadn’t taken her own life. I’d spent my whole career searching for the truth, and I wasn’t about to stop now. Trouble was, without my usual sources, how much of a murder investigation could I pull off?
But a special kid lived next door. Abit Bradshaw, a teenager struggling to find his rightful place in the world. Hey, I knew all about that. I’d never fitted in either, but eventually I’d found something I was good at. I figured he just needed a chance too.
And he got one when we teamed up to solve that crime. Along the way, we sure met some interesting characters—both bad and good. We worked hard to find the killer before we became the next victims.
I should’ve known plans rarely pan out the way you think. ~Della Kincaid
