"An exotic and colorful picture of Appalachia...A well-crafted, suspenseful tale."—Sharyn McCrumb

SIGNS IN THE BLOOD by Vicki Lane Elizabeth Goodweather and her husband built a rewarding life in the hills and hollows of their adopted Appalachian home. But now Elizabeth is alone, her husband tragically killed, her children grown, the land around her filled with customs and beliefs she cannot share. It's still a good life—tending the small herb and flower business—but Elizabeth's fragile peace is about to be shattered.

Cletus Gentry vanished while hunting ginseng in the hills—and his mother is sure the childlike man was murdered. As Elizabeth retraces Cletus's last wanderings, she will discover that a killer has been waiting all the while in the coves and hollows near her farm for her to see the light...and then come willingly to her own death.
