Figure Eight Island is not what you’d call a sleepy little hamlet. Home to million-dollar houses and wealth, the island near Wilmington, North Carolina is the place to live and vacation for the South’s privileged class.
Contractor Carroll Davenport doesn’t party with the jet-setters; she builds houses for them. But when an arsonist destroys a house she’s building and her job supervisor is found buried under ten feet of topsoil, Carroll is drawn into a world of drug smuggling, corruption and murder. It’s enough to wreck her day.
The challenging task of keeping Carroll safe becomes perilous when a rogue cop pegs her as the murderer. Under the protective eye of Sheriff Stan Council and with the help of a not-unattractive off-duty FBI agent, Carroll struggles to clear her name—but what she doesn’t know could get her and everyone she loves killed.
