Thirty-five years ago, seven-year-old Hannah Daltry hid under a desk, the only witness to a horrible bank robbery. Still haunted by that day, Hannah uses her passion for writing to teach others, and to try to banish the demons of her past.
Local reporter Elise Jenkins is a student in Hannah’s class. Eager to stretch her writing wings, she’s excited about the assignment Hannah gives and amazed at the teacher’s ability to bring the horrifying scene of a girl watching a bank robbery to life. But inspiration turns to shock when Hannah is found dead in her classroom. Is her only mistake being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or did the past finally catch up with her? Whatever the answer, Elise Jenkins and police detective Mitch Burns are determined to find out.
