Scarlet Oaks and the Banished Witness

Scarlet Oaks Series – Book 3

Scarlet receives another cryptic message during her late night call-in show. The man believes she’s responsible for his friend’s disappearance.  Scarlet dismisses the accusation until she learns the missing girl and James’s sister, Amy, have a connection. Cedar Acres, the beautiful and tranquil care facility Amy calls home is also the last place the missing young woman was seen.

When James is denied access to his sister, the group of amateur sleuths find an alternative form of entry.  Tom and Scarlet go undercover as patients in the hope of finding out what’s really going on at this mysterious facility.   

Where is Amy?  What happened to the missing girl and will Tom and Scarlet’s true identity be discovered? 

With the aid of quirky aliases, spy gadgets, and bloodhounds Scarlet and friends discover Cedar Acres is far from what it appears.

One thing is certain, there’s a murderer in their midst and Scarlet’s running out of time.  Can she solve the two young women’s disappearance before she becomes the killer’s next victim?
