Book 6 in the Diamond and Stone series
14 year old Jessica Cooper is the perfect child
She has an ideal life living with her brother, Michael, and uncle and cousin on a thriving Arizona cattle ranch. She has a boyfriend who worships her. And recently she was named Young Artist of the Year in a national arts competition.
The perfect child.
An old man has been poisoned in the middle of the night.
A body has been found in the scorching Arizona heat propped up against a fence.
Everything points to perfect fourteen-year-old Jessica Ann Cooper.
And now Jessica Cooper has disappeared.
Private Investigators Jake Steiner and Mallory Dimante are about to find out how disturbed the teenager is when, from out of their past, Jessie Cooper and her brother Michael come crashing back into their lives, threatening not just Jake and Mallory’s lives but that of their infant daughter too.
Because perfect Jessie Cooper carries with her a secret even she knows nothing about. It is a twisted secret that involves a lawyer who isn’t one, a rookie detective on her first case, and a hidden diary that reveals what should never be revealed.
And when Jessie resurfaces, this deadly secret will drag Jake, Mallory, and their child into their own personal hell.
The real question is whether Jessie Cooper is perfect or…
… perfectly crazy.
