For Annie Dawson, the discovery of an old Bible in the attic of her home is a link to family she really never knew. But the Bible of William Holden -- the uncle of Annie's grandfather Charles Holden and a Superior Court judge --harbors a dark secret, clues that lead Annie and her Hook and Needle Club friends back to a horrible crime. They also call into question Judge Holden's actions on the bench. What guilt did he apparently carry with him to the grave? Is there a way to reconcile the matter decades later? Or will the quest drive a permanent wedge between Annie and her family?
