Publisher's Summary

Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again.

In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.

But for the not-quite-seven-year-old daughter Daisy she left behind, Violet's absence has never been explained or forgotten.

Now, 34 years later, she wants the solace of closure.

Don't miss the other titles in the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mystery Series.

    "New approach to Grafton's storytelling"

    Utilizing a flash- back method of telling the story, Sue Grafton keeps you guessing to the very end in this compelling whodunit. Great read!
