Rosemary Dempsey always dreaded major plans, felt like something would always go wrong. It was a special party, her husband Jack’s 60th.
Rosemary had mixed feelings when their daughter Susan called and said she couldn’t make it because she had a movie audition. Susan promised to call the next morning, but it wasn’t she who called. It was the LAPD, and they had to identify a young girl's body that was found in a park.
Laurie Moran had a news‑based reality show called Under Suspicion, and Rosemary agreed to allow the show to help uncover their daughter's 20-year-old cold case, the case dubbed the "Cinderella Murder.” Laurie was genuine about digging into the cold cases featured on her show. Fueled by her own haunted past, it was the driving force behind solving the mysteries and the show’s success. She hoped to stir up some things in her search for the murderer--she succeeded.
This mystery will hit a nerve and stick with you. The authors hit emotions that we do not want to consider, the tragic loss of a loved one. Readers will find themselves on an intense, emotionally bumpy ride.
