Abstract:

North Carolina history professor Simon Shaw's reputation as a forensic researcher takes a bizarre twist when he is asked to look into the death of a baby girlby the woman who believes she buried her nearly a hundred years ago. Now in her late twenties, Helen Williams has had flashbacks of another life since she was small. She is convinced she's either insane or is remembering pieces of what she did as a woman named Annie Evans, who lived in Raleigh in 1910. Simon is skeptical, and doesn't believe in reincarnation, but reluctantly agrees to do some digging and see if he can resurrect a life he is sure didn't exist. But Annie did existand so did her secrets. And so does someone here and now who does not want them found ... and will commit murder to keep them in the grave.
