READER REVIEW: "Whoever you are, male or female, this read will leave you breathless, leaving you wanting more and more...The story itself literally moves at lightning speed. It's well constructed, consistently absorbing you with every page full of twists, character revelations, and back stories that you could not have imagined. I become so involved in this ingenious thriller that it left me wondering what was going to happen next, almost making me skip pages, but nah I controlled myself, barely. I read it until my eyes became so sore that I had to put it down and take a walk ." --Natalia

The good news is that public defender Summer Neuwirth just won her first case, which involved a brutal rape and kidnapping.
The bad news? Her client was guilty.
What's more, he knows all about Summer's past.
As Summer pursues her next case, this time to keep an innocent woman off death row, elements of that past--a mysterious case of childhood amnesia, her police officer father's involvement with a serial killer, a terrifying attack she survived just months earlier--entwine with her present legal work, her missing mother, and her rocky relationship with a private investigator, all of which culminate in a thrilling trial... and terror.
