A Detroit crime reporter goes up against a powerful mob boss—and her own painful past—in this “exciting and gritty” thriller (Kirkus Reviews).
Scarred by a traumatic event in her childhood, Julia Gooden has learned to juggle different lives. A successful Detroit journalist, she covers the worst crimes in the city while raising her two young boys in the suburbs. Her marriage is also a balancing act. As she tries to reconnect with her husband, Assistant District Attorney David Tanner, she must also maintain professional boundaries.
Though Julia is certain that Rossi orchestrated the attack, the case against him is collapsing. With the help of Detroit Detective Raymond Navarro, she follows a trail of blackmail, payback, and political ambition. Julia has risked her career before, but this time innocent lives—including her children’s—hang in the balance. And justice may come too late to save what truly matters.
