Summary:

"After a serial killer almost murdered Delpha Wade (The Do-Right, 2015), the hospital releases her into the rough hands of the Beaumont police for questioning. She doesn't deny she killed the man--in self-defense. Problem is, she's an ex-con. Self-defense was also her plea in 1959, when a knife changed hands and she buried it in the chest of a man who was raping her. Self-defense didn't keep her out of prison. Now it's 1973, and cops are still the first judges--will they charge her? Her boss, neophyte private detective Tom Phelan, has a plan. He holds her job for her, and soon they have a new client. Easy case: one brother looking for the long-lost other, but it turns out that around one of these guys, people die. Which one? Maybe the red-headed girl--the strange one who catches glimpses of the darkest places and can see into the past--can help. But only Delpha is wise enough to listen to that wild gal." --Provided by publisher.
