Book 6 in the Diamond and Stone series

How dangerous is Jessie Cooper?

Fourteen-year-old Jessica Ann Cooper is called the perfect child. In a national arts competition, she was just named Young Artist of the Year. Her paintings of women and their babies are dark but disturbingly compelling.
She seems to have an ideal life with her brother, Michael, and uncle and cousin on a thriving Arizona cattle ranch.

An ideal life, but... the question is… how crazy is Jessie Cooper?

Because now an old man has been poisoned in the middle of the night.

And a body is found in scorching Arizona heat, propped up against a fence.

Everything points to perfect fourteen-year-old Jessica Ann Cooper.

And 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 Jessie Cooper carries with her a secret even she knows nothing about. A twisted secret that involves… a lawyer who isn’t one, a helpful private investigator who sabotages the investigation, and a rookie detective on her first case. And it is a secret that a shadowy group is desperate to get.


And when Jessie resurfaces, it becomes a deadly secret that will drag Jake and Mallory into their own personal hell.


Jessica Ann Cooper is perfect...  or perfectly crazy.
