In less than one week it was burned to the ground. Inspired by the true story of one towns destruction at the hands of hate and intolerance, ROSEWOODS ASHES is a driven mystery, as well as unique perspective on historical injustice. Returning to Florida to visit her coma-stricken father, Tory Travers prepares herself for the demons of her past, the sordid reputation shed suffered as a senators daughter. Accompanying her for moral support is David Alvarez--devoted friend, infrequent lover, and detective with the El Paso Police Department.But before the pair have a chance to confront Torys troubled past, they are confronted with a more immediate tragedy in the vehicular manslaughter of a young woman they just met on the plane. A young woman who had told them about Rosewood and of the senators involvement in research concerning the events that led to the towns destruction. Soon, another corpse turns up, a man well known to Tory, and Alvarez takes a personal interest in unearthing the truth about Rosewood, before Tory herself becomes a suspect--or a victim.
