No-one in town is particularly surprised when Erica Martine's salon is burned down. The local diva has a reputation of causing drama and creating enemies wherever she goes. It's a gift. They are, however, surprised when it's revealed that she didn't burn it down. Things heat up even further when the body of notorious local gangster Casper "Spooky" Stewart is found behind her now-empty salon.

The bereft business owner becomes an immediate suspect, and she desperately seeks out Clary st. James' help. To Clary, it seems that everyone and their mother had a reason to burn down Erica's salon, including Erica herself. Tensions rise further as a mysterious troublemaker starts turning people against each other and planting false clues.

Clary realizes that it's time to unmask The Secret Keeper as the mysterious manipulator grows increasingly bold and dangerous. And an ominous question hangs over everyone. Was Erica's salon an isolated event?

Will Clary find the culprit before any more businesses go up in smoke? Find out in the final instalment of the Story Tree Mysteries.
