Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The voice is hard-boiled and the plot engrossing in Jackson's (Someone Else's Love Story) new novel, a realistic, contemporary story with a mystery driving it. In a twist, the troubled detective protagonist is no screwed-up male with substance abuse issues and an inability to commit (although there is one in the story); rather, she is hard-nosed, mixed-race, divorce lawyer Paula Vauss, nicknamed Kali (as in the fearsome Hindu goddess) by her feckless but charming mother Kai. Paula has settled near Atlanta, where she tries to push away everyone she cares about, but this becomes impossible when her past and present converge. She hasn't seen her mother Kai in years; then, the monthly check she sends to her is returned with a cryptic message, and a half-brother, Julian, whom she didn't know she had, shows up. Although Paula is rough and reckless, Jackson makes her an easy character to root for by vividly depicting her inner struggle and past. This is an excellent read with a fresh take on the detective genre. (Feb.) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From the Inside Flap

"Part twisting suspense, part unflinching exploration"--Susan Rebecca White, author of A SOFT PLACE TO LAND

Paula Vauss spent the first decade of her life on the road with her free-spirited young mother, Kai, who told stories blending Hindu mythology with southern oral tradition to reinvent their history as they roved. But everything changed when Paula told a story of her own--one that landed Kai in prison and Paula in foster care.

These days, Paula is a tough-as-nails divorce attorney with a successful practice in Atlanta. While she hasn't seen Kai in fifteen years, she's still making payments on that karmic debt--until the day her last check is returned in the mail, along with a mystifying note: "I am going on a journey, Kali. I am going back to my beginning; death is not the end. You will be the end. We will meet again, and there will be new stories. You know how Karma works."

Desperate to find her mother before it's too late, Paula sets off on a journey of discovery that will take her back to the past and into the deepest recesses of her heart.
