It is only after she has reluctantly agreed to represent him that Tara discovers the real reason Bill Hamilton has sought her out--and the shocking crime he has committed.
Tara wants to warn her friend that her life might be in danger, but is bound by attorney-client privilege. Caught in a web of escalating circumstances that threatens not only her professional reputation but her life, Tara soon finds herself at the mercy of her dangerously unstable client...a man who is growing more dangerous everyday.
