"Wiehl's experience as a former federal prosecutor gives the narrative an authenticity in its depiction of the criminal justice system. Henry's expertise in writing mysteries and thrillers has placed her on the short-list for the Agatha, Anthony, and Oregon Book awards. The coauthors' ... fast-paced detective series will keep legal thriller readers and John Grisham fans totally engrossed." -Library Journal

A prosecutor of violent criminals. A detective on a dangerous beat. When these two pros take on an off-the-books case, the line between professional and personal becomes perilously blurred.

When a twenty-two-year-old convict walks into the courtroom, his eyes confirm what Mia Quinn already guesses: he blames her for his conviction. In seconds, he knocks her to the ground and holds a razor blade to her throat. While she manages to escape without injury, it's just one more reminder that Mia's job prosecuting Seattle's s most dangerous criminals is far from low risk.

As a single mom, the last thing Mia wants is for her work to follow her home or discover that it already has.

Now Detective Charlie Carlson is suggesting the very thing Mia doesn't want to believe-that her accountant husband's deadly car accident was no accident at all. When Mia and Charlie encounter resistance to reopening the case, they take the investigation into their own hands. And they find much more than they bargained for.

Was Mia's husband more than an accountant ... and less than an honest man? As the truth becomes more shocking and the case grows more complex, her husband's killers take note of Mia ... and her children. How far will this prosecutor go to learn the truth about her husband-and how far will she have to go to protect her family?

Fearful
4 stars By Hannah, Dec 27 2016
This suspense novel is written excellently. The authors career in the contents field adds to the depth and realistic theme of the story. Mia's struggles are genuine and relevant to many currently living a single mother lifestyle. 

The plot is intense and has you gripping in your seat. The author doesn't give away everything in the first 5 pages

Unfortunate Narration Choice
2 stars By sarah, Jul 16 2016
I really wanted to like this book. However, despite the decent writing, the chosen narrator was awful. Using only a monotone voice throughout the entire story - she detracted all the necessary emotion and interest from the story. Having read many of Lis Wiehl's other novels, I was suprised with this narration choice. For those who are able to read this novel in another format, I recommend you do so. For the rest of us - definetly skip this book!

Good read
4 stars By Harsh, Jul 14 2016
Lis goes into great depth of story line and captures you in the suspense. She focuses more on the crime and suspense side of the story line as opposed to the romance which is refreshing if you're a fan of romance suspense. The characters are realistic and have human struggles and you feel for them.
