Enlisted to investigate the crime to absolve her friend, Crystal descends on the quiet city of Forks to find loggers, developers, and eco-protesters circling the property, intent on either exploiting or protecting the bastion of old-growth forest. The list of suspects is intimidating. Can Crystal find answers in a community determined to keep her in the dark?

SPRING ABOUT A CRIME
1) “That’s why we have to go after the guy. He took the dress. It’s the proof we need to get the police here. Not the local ones. Real policemen, who want to get to the bottom of this. Ones who will want to solve Olivia’s mur…” Crystal couldn’t finish the word. Choking back the pain, she continued. “I think I’m ready to go after him.”
Sympathy radiated from Suzy’s tormented expression. “We can’t chase an armed murderer through the forest. You can barely stand.”
2) Behind them, the rumble of the truck’s diesel engine grew. Not focusing on the treacherous path in front of her, she risked a quick glance backward. The truck halted next to the job trailer. The door creaked open and Crystal stumbled over a blackberry vine, the beastly bush sliding up her leg and raking her shin with thorns. Seizing her arm, Conner steadied her. The sound of the truck door slamming urged them on.
“Hey! What the hell are you doing on my property?” The furious, raspy bellow startled them into redoubling their pace.
Another ill-advised glance showed Crystal they were almost to the tree line. “Keep going. We’re almost there.”
An ominous metallic click caught her attention, followed by another. A gunshot blasted through the serene wilderness and Conner fell, gasping and swearing.
3) The question died on Crystal’s lips. Roxie stood with a massive chef’s knife clutched in her hand over the still form of Frederic Baranhof. Blood stained the blade, and crimson pooled around the unmoving body.
