Travel writer Lily Moore has been persuaded by her closest friend, photographer Jesse Robb, to visit Peru with him. At Machu Picchu, they discover a woman clinging to life at the bottom of an ancient stone staircase. Just before the woman dies, she tells Lily the name of the man who pushed her.
When the local police investigate, the forensic evidence they find doesn't match what Lily knows. Unable to accept the official ruling of accidental death, Lily hunts down the wealthy man who was the dead woman's traveling companion and discovers a pattern of dead and missing women in his wake. Obsessed with getting justice for these women, Lily sets in motion a violent chain of events that will have devastating consequences.

"Lily Moore is one of the most appealing 'amateur' sleuths I've encountered in years. The vivid sense of place - Peru, in this case - is everything one would expect from a seasoned travel journalist like Hilary Davidson, the story is deliciously twisty, the characters engaging. I know I can't be the only reader looking forward to more Moore." (Laura Lippman, New York Times best-selling author of I'd Know You Anywhere)
"Hilary Davidson knocks it out of the park. If this book doesn't get your motor running, have someone check you for a pulse." (Reed Farrel Coleman, three-time Shamus Award-winning author of Hurt Machine)
"Will leave you breathless, and not just because of the Andes' high altitude. [Davidson's] determined young travel writer propels the exciting plot like a rocket." (Library Journal)
The main character was smart and feisty. I loved her best friendand their relationship. I thought their were too many characters, some needless.
Yes. She's a smart writer with a strong female lead.
I thought her voice for the main character was flat and monotone. I disliked her reading. However, her supporting characters were fabulous. She handled the accents well.
