In one brief moment of fire and wrenching metal, everything important in Casey Maldonado's life was gone. The car manufacturer was generous with its settlement, but it can never be enough. So she packs up, puts her house on the market, and leaves town. Her only companion: Death, who won't take her, but won't leave her alone.

She stops on a whim in Clymer, a small blue-collar town in Ohio. Drawn to the town, Casey learns that HomeMaker, the town's appliance factory and main employer, has moved to Mexico, and the town has been rocked by the suicide of a beloved single mother. But many of the citizens don't believe the verdict of suicide. Death encourages her to investigate, and she uncovers information that points to the factory. Was the victim's death a cover-up? Then Casey begins to receive messages that she should leave well enough alone. She decides she'd be better off back on the road, but the murderer can't let her go with everything she knows....

display_description After a near fatal car accident, Casey Maldonado's life is over. So she packs up, puts her house on the market, and leaves town, her only companion Death, who won't take her but won't leave her alone. Casey stops in Clymer, a town in upheaval. The town's appliance factory and main employer, a company called HomeMaker, is planning to move to Mexico. Not only that, but the town has been rocked by the suicide of a beloved single mother. However, many citizens don't believe the verdict of suicide at all. Death encourages Casey to investigate, and she uncovers information that points to the factory. Did the victim truly have the means, as she claimed, to keep the factory from leaving town? Is it possible that her death was a cover-up?
