Murder mystery set in Memphis, Tennessee in the 1940s. A prominent African American family, owners and operators of a local grocery store, finds itself embroiled in a murder trial after one of its members marries the daughter of a man who has a dark past and questionable present-day connections. Two of the family's youngest members have clairvoyant insights into a young girl's murder, a murder the town's most prominent figure will stop at nothing to keep covered up.
Denise gives an overview of the book:
The summer of 1934 was an unusual summer in Louisville, Kentucky. It was the summer children became scared to go outside and play. Although they never said a word, not even amongst each other, the children knew through the many warnings their parents gave them that something more fierce, dreadful and evil than ghosts, goblins and imaginary monsters was outside . . . maybe at the park, just around the corner from their family home, perhaps at the edge of the school yard. . . .
