Stuntwoman Darcy Lott can stare down any risky physical feat — until a mistake during a stunt injures Darcy's protegé. Significantly shaken and facing a crisis of confidence, Darcy calls upon her Buddhist beliefs and retreats to a monastery in the California redwoods. What she finds is anything but soul-centering: the monastery's enigmatic leader is poisoned, and an attempt is made on Darcy's own life. When harsh weather prevents Darcy from escaping the retreat, she and the other students pursue their meditation, even as the threat of murder lurks all around them. Darcy must overcome her own personal crisis in order to keep herself — as well as the other practitioners — safe.

About the Author:

Susan Dunlap is the author of nineteen novels, and numerous short stories. She

in Crime. Her day jobs have ranged from teaching hatha yoga, to
working on a death penalty defense team. She and her husband live
near San Francisco.

From Booklist:

Dunlap returns after a long hiatus with a new sleuth, Darcy Lott, a movie stuntwoman and Zen practitioner. She is strong but afraid of being alone in the woods. After a stunt goes wrong and sends her plummeting into a forest, her Zen master sends her to a retreat in a remote redwood forest in California to face her fear. He also wants her to deliver a message to the head of the monastery, Leo Garson-roshi. Once she arrives, she discovers that the monastery is full of secrets. A student disappeared several years ago, and everyone fears that he is dead. Leo says that he plans to leave the community after this retreat, which he dedicates to the missing student. Strange things begin to happen, and Darcy fears that Leo's life is in danger. Anthony and Macavity Award-winning author Dunlap has created an engaging new female detective. Fans of her Kiernan O'Shaughnessy series will welcome Dunlap back and eagerly await Darcy's next case. Barbara Bibel
