New Excerpt


The room was pitched dark, and you could hear the phone ringing very loudly.   

However, there was no answer that night of May 27, 2009 at the Carlyle residence.    
This is when the neighbor retired Nurse  Agatha Lane called the authorities.   Ms. Lane 
lived alone and never married and took a liking to the Carlyle’s.  Sadie and Ms. Lane  
became instant friends and she also extended her help to them when they needed care 
for their daughter.  In her frantic call she just said she had heard a gunshot and believed 
some intruders had broken into the home.  This is when the authorities were alerted and 
they went straight to the scene of the crime.  The large Mansion  was located in North 
Raleigh.  This was a very private and secluded area.  Both  Dante and Sadie  were part 
of a very wealthy class with both of them belonging to families that had inherited 
millions.  Dante’s father Douglas was a very wealthy financial investor in the North 
Carolina area , and his mother Dorotea a very well known Art Dealer. 
In Sadie’s side of the family  her father Jackson Martin was a successful criminal 
defense attorney for the state of Georgia in the city of Atlanta.  As for Sadie’s mother  
Lila Claire  Reece Martin came into money due to her late great grandfather.   He was 
heir to a rich royal family back in his native Romania and had always been fond of Lila.    
The authorities made their way into the house late that night and  all appeared very 
quiet.  The two officers on the case were Lt. Michael Phillips and officer Enrique Nunez.    
They both  had been on the force for over 10 years and were still not prepared for what they 
found.
