Jo Durbin, an embedded reporter, covers the reenactment of the War of 1812, America's forgotten war, at a Chesapeake Bay village. Should be a piece of cake. Plenty of action, faux dead bodies, pretend battles, a weeping widow, even the everyday lives of the RVers (Workampers who work at the event) and the activities of their children—all fodder for her pen. Except—there's a real body, forgotten in the grass.As the victim's checkered past emerges, suspects multiply, including the police themselves, a couple of the reenactors, and even the mayor. Jo's young friend might be involved—if not as the killer, then as one being protected by others.Despite any help or hindrance from her sister, a friend, and the man who wants to be more than a friend, Jo is alone when she follows a figment of her imagination into a storm. With a killer on the loose, she knows she's not be the only one searching for a missing child.
