Anyone who’s read a romantic thriller from the incredible Karen Robards knows she’s “one terrific storyteller” (Chicago Tribune). And the New York Times bestselling author’s newest tour de force once again proves the point.
Kate was a rebellious 15-year-old foster child when she inadvertently participated in a convenience store hold up that left an off-duty cop dead. She and her “friends” scattered into the night, and though none of them were caught, the incident haunts her still. Now Kate’s past comes roaring back on the morning she, a single mother and Philadelphia DA, is taken hostage in a courtroom shoot-out only to be “saved” by an inmate she knows all too well.
Kate always despised Mario Castellanos, the leader of their adolescent pack. Although he was the triggerman back then, he says he’ll ruin her if she doesn’t get him off. But when Mario is released and winds up dead—in her house—Kate fears his killer will make a move against her, or worse, her son. Kate does have an option: confess everything to homicide detective Tom Braga—even if it extinguishes the spark between them. Tom will help. He has to! Unless—not impossible to imagine given her past—he’ll think she’s guilty.
