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. It looked like heaven to me—ancient mountains brimming with tall trees and songbirds, peace and quiet. Until I found the body.
The sheriff called it a suicide. No way. I’d spent my whole career searching for the truth, and I I knew he was wrong. 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. I figured he just needed a chance too. And he got one when we teamed up to solve that crime.
Looking back, I should’ve known plans rarely pan out the way you think. ~Della Kincaid
