When Kate White was fifteen, her friends held up a store and killed an off-duty cop. They got away with it.
Thirteen years later, Kate is a single mother and a prosecutor in the Philadelphia district attorney’s office. Then, one nightmare morning, violence explodes in her courtroom and she comes face to face with the old friend who killed the cop so many years ago.
Mario Castellanos could destroy the life Kate has built for herself. Even when he is found dead - in Kate’s house, and with Kate’s fingerprints on the pistol. Things get worse when homicide detective Tom Braganza turns up to investigate: a man she’s always clashed with.
But Tom’s the only person she can turn to when Kate’s life - and her son’s - is put in danger.
