A Grief Counselor fights to help a little girl suffering from shock after witnessing a terrible murder. Her life is in danger, and together with the help from detectives, Kelly Anderson races against time to solve the case that involves murder, kidnapping, and international diamond smuggling.


When Kelly Anderson's best friends were murdered on a vacation to Mexico, it rocked her world, and forever changed her life. After graduating in Psychology from college, Kelly has made it her goal to help other people deal with tragedy in order to move on with their lives. As a Grief Counselor who works directly with the police department, her current case concerns a little 8 year old girl named Angelita, who is so traumatized by her 11 year old brother's death, that she cannot talk. She could be a potential eyewitness for the crime, however, and that puts her in great danger. Kelly becomes embroiled in an international murder/smuggling/kidnapping crime spree, all for diamonds, that takes her to Lima Peru, and brings together a Latin family that no one knew existed. Mike Torres, the lead detective on this case, follows Kelly to South America. His head tells him it’s just business, but his heart has other ideas. He just can’t seem to resist this beautiful blonde clumsy tornado that has whirled into his life and heart. Things come to a climax in a shootout that pits Father against son, and gives a Grandfather a whole new family he knew nothing about. A story about how pain and grief are part of our world, but with help of family and friends and a good sense of humor, they do not have to 'define' our life. Kelly finds love and new purpose in her life. Young Angelita finds love and a new family, while Luis Oliveri is stripped of everything that he thought made life worth living, his wealth, fame, and his business empire. There is, of course, no one to blame but Kelly Anderson, and his sole purpose in life becomes the destruction of Kelly and all of the things that are important to her. Revenge can turn a man's soul to darkness and his heart as black as the night.
