When the death of her beloved Uncle Loy draws Helen Black back to Mississippi, she finds herself in the midst of another mystery -- and this one involves her own family. Helen wonders whether Uncle Loy's last words might have explained the photo she finds of Uncle Loy with a beautiful woman or the sudden appearance of corporate lawyers offering Aunt Edna what appears to be hush money. These strange events set Helen on the trail of a conspiracy that grows deeper and darker as she unravels the connections between human need, corporate greed, sex, death, and power. Helen, too, is unraveling, however: unable to resist either booze, risky sex, or a trail she's been warned not to follow, her unpredictable behavior risks the lives of the very people she would like to protect, as well as the love of the one woman she still trusts. Ultimately, Helen must decide whether getting to the bottom of a mystery is worth hitting bottom herself.

Hayley Okines was just like any other teenager: she loved clothes, shopping, and boy bands, and hated getting up in the morning. But she had progeria, which meant she aged eight times faster than normal, giving her the body of a 126-year-old. Her positive attitude and infectious smile charmed millions of people through her Extraordinary People TV documentaries. At the age of seventeen, in April 2015, Hayley tragically lost her battle to be the longest survivor of progeria, succumbing to pneumonia in the arms of her mother. This book tells Hayley’s story in her own words, continuing from the bestselling Old Before My Time. She reflects on the pains and perks of growing up with progeria – from the heartbreak of being told she will never walk again to the delight of passing her exams and starting college. Hayley considers mood swings, marriage, music, and what it’s like to be ‘famous’ and is heartbreakingly positive about a future that wasn’t to be.
