An old woman, a hoarder, is dying of emphysema in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. In cleaning out her house, her daughter, Liza Machett, discovers a fortune in hundred dollar bills hidden in the tall stacks of books and magazines that crowd every corner.

Its up to Joanna to find out.

Synopsis:

Cleaning out her dying mother's dilapidated house in Massachusetts, Liza Machett discovers a fortune in hundred-dollar bills. The money seems like a blessing, until an elderly man warns her that someone very dangerous is looking for her. Terrified, Liza sets off on a perilous journey that will lead her to Cochise County, Arizona, where Sheriff Joanna Brady is embroiled in a mystery of her own.

Junior Dowdle, a developmentally disabled man, is found dead in a limestone cavern near Bisbee. Inside the cave, the police also discover an injured kitten, and the remains of other mutilated pets. Junior was a kind, sweet man Joanna consid­ered a family friend. Was his death an accident, or is he a victim as well?

Her department stretched to the limit, Joanna must solve these two disturbing cases fast, before more innocent blood is shed.
