A dark and lonely place: [a novel]
A Dark and Lonely Place poses the question: can we change our destiny, or must our lives always end the same way? In Miami, Police Detective Sgt. John Ashley hunts a woman linked to a murdered millionaire and finds she is the girl who's haunted his dreams since childhood. A century ago on America's southern frontier, John Ashley's ancestor was wrongly accused of murder and goes on the run with his sweetheart. The lovers became the most colorful, compelling, and heartbreaking figures in Florida's violent outlaw history. Can the present-day couple break the tragic cycle imprinted on their DNA? The two stories entwine in this compelling, suspenseful tale of past and present renegade lovers.

From Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Buchanan, the novel she has always wanted to write: the gripping saga of star-crossed lovers across generations.
From Pulitzer Prize winner Edna Buchanan, the novel she has always wanted to write: the gripping saga of star-crossed lovers across generations. A century ago, when Indians and alligators roamed frontier Miami, the legendary John Ashley was accused of murder and sentenced to hang. He insisted he was innocent and went on the run with his sweetheart, Laura Upthegrove.
John and Laura became the most notorious, colorful, and compelling figures in Florida's violent outlaw history. Their sensual and dreamy saga is juxtaposed with the taut and suspenseful story of their fictional descendants who share the same love and dangers a hundred years later. In today's Miami, Homicide Sergeant John Ashley investigates a millionaire's spectacular murder and instantly recognizes a stunning model linked to the case as the girl who has haunted his dreams since childhood. Her name is Laura, and the lightning-fast attraction is supernaturally mutual.
The homicide case goes bad, Ashley is falsely accused of murder just like his ancestor, and the new lovers go on the run as history repeats itself. The question is, how powerful is the past? Do the present-day renegades stand a chance? Can we change our own destiny? Or must the end always be the same for dangerous people in dangerous times?
In a sweeping epic that explores the inevitability of fate, A Dark and Lonely Place draws the reader into an unforgettable world of intrigue, drama, romance, and tragedy.
