Publisher's Summary

"Narrator Jennywren Walker energetically portrays Violet Hart, a quirky yet likable photographer practicing her art in this cleverly titled mystery.... Walker's moving descriptions of a crumbling yet occasionally vibrant Detroit and its citizens take listeners on a poignant yet optimistic tour of the city.... Added bonuses are Walker's well-rendered quotes from famous photographers such a Cecil Beaton and Alfred Stieglitz and glimpses into the world of art galleries." (AudioFile magazine)

Violet Hart is a photographer who has always returned to cobble out a life for herself in the oddly womblike interiors of Detroit. Nearing 40, she's keenly aware that the time for artistic recognition is running out. When her lover, Bill, a Detroit mortician, needs a photograph of a body, she agrees to take the picture. It's an artistic success, and Violet, energized by the subject matter, persuades Bill to allow her to take pictures of some of his other "clients", eventually settling on photographing young black men. 

When Violet's new portfolio is launched, she quickly strikes a deal, agreeing to produce a dozen pictures with a short deadline, confident because dead bodies are commonplace in Detroit, and she has access to the city's most prominent mortician. These demands soon place Violet in the position of having to strain to meet her quota. 

As time runs out, how will Violet come up with enough subjects to photograph without losing her soul or her life in the process? A riveting novel of psychological suspense, Patricia Abbott continues to cement herself as one of our very best writers of the darkness that lies within the human heart.
