An Old Murder Mystery
The past comes back to haunt a young woman in the form of an old murder mystery
Is the past ever really gone? For those who try and outrun the past, can they ever run fast enough to truly get away from their past? Can they every forget the past? Those events that live with them, haunting them like a ghost, always lurking around the dark corners of their mind. Like the thoughts of a past love that come flooding in when a particular song comes on the radio, or the memories of a relative long fill your mind when you experience a certain scent, the events of our past are always there, ready to be triggered and brought to the front of our minds, and in my latest murder mystery novel, the past comes back for Imara Callan in ways she couldn’t possibly imagine.
Imara had always thought she had a great family. When Imara was growing up, she couldn’t dream of having better parents or a nicer younger sister. But a car accident caused her mother to…change. Her mind was no longer what it was. Imara’s mother was a different person and was causing much friction within the family. Imara’s sister Sarah started growing up, and like all young teens, started testing the boundaries of what was possible. Sarah, however, pushed much further than most and started to lose herself in a fog of substance abuse. The pinnacle of past events that shook Imara’s view of her family was the night her father vanished without a trace.
Imara had spent years trying to forget all those past events, running from them, hiding from them, but when her former best friend, Anna Garst, returns with plans to solve the murder mystery of her parents, parents that were murdered on the same night that Imara’s father disappeared, Imara finds herself not only thrown into the events of her past, but the events of the future as a strange magician arrives, ready to put on the show of a lifetime, and begins to reveal that he knows something of the murder mystery of Imara’s past. As the show date gets closer, Imara finds that her past was never gone, only hidden in her mind and the strange magician will force her to confront the ghosts that haunted her past.
