How can something that happened in the 19th century lead to a murder case in the 21st century. Gwen Marcey is about to find out. She agrees to work on reconstructing the faces of the victims of the Mountain Meadow Massacre.
As Gwen works she finds evidence that leads her to a more recent murder, a murder that looks like a ritualistic killing. She finds herself at odds with a secret society that is bent on keeping her quiet.
Murder and mayhem, what a great way to spend an afternoon, finding the killer. I love that we are getting new writers in the mystery genre and Carrie Stuart Parks joins the ranks with A Cry From the Dust of interesting reads. Ones that are probably best not read while sitting alone in the dark.
