Join us as we open the escape hatch from national news headlines to enter a place of imagination, mystery, suspense, and finely drawn characters riddled with motives both hidden and all too obvious. Drop In with Fay Snowden, creator of: Raven Burns spent a lifetime running from the sins of her father, notorious serial killer Floyd “Fire” Burns. Now a Louisiana homicide detective, Raven is still running, because Floyd’s voice is always in her head, shadowing her steps, reminding her of who she is and where she came from. Not that anyone would ever let her forget. Distrust of Raven’s background runs deep in the small Louisiana town that remembers Floyd well and the ritualistic murder of a local socialite fuels the fire, giving many the ammunition they need to see her gone, including those in her own department. With her badge on the line, Raven hunts for the killer, finding clues that make her question if this is more closely tied to Floyd Burns than even she’s willing to admit.
