When Alexandra Clarkson starts having terrifying visions, she thinks that her mind is playing tricks on her. But when Alex's mother, Patsy, commits suicide without leaving behind any information, Alex is left to wonder whether she might be haunted by something from a childhood she can't remember.
Detective Daniel Reed was the last person to speak to Patsy. What he reveals to Alex is shocking: Twenty-five years earlier, Patsy was married to Harlan Sommer, one of Sonoma County's most prominent vintners, when their infant son disappeared without a trace. The loss destroyed the Sommers' marriage, causing Patsy to leave and take Alex with her.
Called on to investigate the identity of a baby's remains unearthed in a Sonoma vineyard, Reed had picked up a trail that led him to Patsy in San Francisco. Could these cold bones be Alex's long lost baby brother? Alex joins Reed in Sonoma for the investigation-and is soon drawn deep into the search for a twisted killer...
