On a cold winter night in a small Minnesota town in 1979, someone comes looking for Grace Meades. She is killed and her house is set ablaze. Incredibly, the prime suspect if her own daughter, Jillian. Rexcued from the burning house, Jillian Meade is hospitalized, unable-or unwilling-to speak. After an attempt to take her own life, Jillian's doctor gives hera blank journal to encourage her to write about her mother's death. Unaware of what has happened, FBI Special Agent Alex Cruz comes to Havenwood, Minnesota, to interview Jillian. Two elderly women were found murdered in their homes in England, and Jillian it seems, was the last person to see both women alive. When he learns that Jillian's own mother met a similar fate, he realizes that there is far more going on than anyone ever imagined. When Jillian suddenly disappears, Cruz has only her journal to decipher the story of Grace and Jillian Meade. A story of a wartime heist of Nazi gold, of ungorgivable betrayals and ruthless actions. A deadly secret from the past, Cruz learns, has surfaced. And if he doesn't find Jillian soon, she, too, may be made to pay the ultimate price.
