More Description

Sacrificed Lives is a fast-paced thriller set in South Carolina, told through a series of flashbacks and present day action.

On a hot July afternoon in 1966, Harriet Ross gives her six-year-old twin cousins, Yvette and Yvonne, a fistful of change and sends them to a country store for soft drinks. Yvonne never returns, and when Yvette is finally found, she has gone mad with terror.

Thirty years later, when Harriet returns to the same small town to probate the estate of the twins' mother, Missella Mayhew, and set up a trust for the care of her disabled cousin, Yvette, she decides to investigate the circumstances surrounding her cousins' disappearance. She consults Balt Monroe, a lawyer, who refers her to his friend, Hollis "Doc" Halliday, a private investigator, and together the three of them begin going through Missella's records.

As their efforts bring them closer to the truth about Missella and her daughters, they uncover a long-hidden tale of miscegenation, racial hatred, and murder. And they find that the man behind the story they are threatening to expose, a powerful South Carolina senator, will go to any lengths to preserve his secrets.
