Belle Vie was already controversial, even before the brutal murder. The elegant architecture and lush greenery of the sprawling Louisiana plantation belied its terrible history during the age of slavery—a bitter legacy distorted beyond recognition by the actors who re-enact their version of “history” for visitors.
Today is Caren Gray’s first day as manager of the estate, and it should be a joyful day, for a wedding is about to take place on the grounds. But when Caren finds the body of a young woman—her throat cut—in a shallow grave near the old slave quarters, her new job becomes far more than she bargained for. The list of suspects is long, the potential for public scandal is great, and the killer may strike again at any time.
