About the Book


the newest novel from New York Times bestselling author
Karen Robards, a feisty female attorney's past comes back to haunt

One cold November night when Kat White was fifteen years old, she
and some friends held up a convenience store. In the heat of the
moment, one of the others shot and killed an off-duty cop
moonlighting as a security guard. Kat and her pals fled the scene
in a panic, and no one was caught.

Sixteen years later, Kat --- now Kate --- has built a new life for
herself. Now a single mom with an eight-year-old son, she works as
a prosecutor in the Philadelphia DA's office. But her dark past
rears its head when she walks into court one day and discovers that
she is to prosecute Mario Castellanos, one of her friends from that
terrible night.

Kate is in a bind: even though Mario was the one who probably did
commit the crime, he's counting on Kate to make sure he's not
convicted. If she convinces the judge of his guilt, he'll claim
that she was the one who killed the off-duty cop. Before real
despair sets in, Mario is found dead --- in her apartment, and with
her pistol. When homicide detective Tom Braga shows up to
investigate the murder, Kate is far from relieved; the two have
clashed since she started working for the prosecutor's office. But
when another man who knows the secret of Kate's past gets involved
in the investigation, she learns that her life --- and her son's
--- are in danger. Frantic, she realizes that she has nowhere to
turn. Except, maybe, to Tom...
