Natalia Rawlings and Kenzi Davis, were thirteen-year-old best friends who loved to have fun. Unfortunately, their determination to experience life no matter what happened led to their murders. It was too late for the teens to realize that they were better off playing with their dolls than with fire. Why were they in that old abandoned house in the first place? What happened? Why were their bodies disposed of in that trunk? The police were doing their best to solve the case, but their efforts were not enough for the mothers, Spencer and Joan. 

Enter Duke Wellington a suave, no nonsense former beat cop who emits the gritty edge of the North East Coast streets where he was groomed. The African-American private investigator meets and befriends Pastor Charles, after the minister saves his son Devin's life after a car accident that claimed the life of Duke's wife and daughter. As a promise, Pastor Charles "loans" Duke's business card to his parishioners who are in dire need of his help. Such is the case when Duke is hired, (pro bono) to investigate the deaths of the two girls. Their brutal murders shock their families, as well as the community. The mystery is right up his alley as he is a proponent for children and works diligently to get justice for them.

What Duke uncovers during his hunt for answers takes him from ethnically mixed suburbia to the projects. He learns that the girls were in over their heads in their quest to have fun. During the mystery he is involved in a high-speed chase in his 1965 Corvette Stingray convertible. In the end he discovers the meaning of pure evil in a suspect no one expected.
