Abbey and her best friend, Bee, set out to solve another mystery with its roots deep in southern history in this follow-up to J. E. Thompson’s The Girl from Felony Bay. For the first time in a long time, things are looking up for Abbey Force. She lives on Reward Plantation with Bee, and her lawyer father has just woken up from his coma. But then Abbey and Bee’s neighbor’s dog, Yemassee, is kidnapped, and they are the only witnesses. They decide it’s their job to find the men who took him.
This dognapping, though, will lead Abbey and Bee into something much deeper: a mystery connected to cases of Abbey’s father’s, old and new. Before they’re through, Abbey and Bee will once again have to dig through the history of their South Carolina home in order to set things right.
