Attorney Kate Logan needs a high-profile case to jump-start her fledgling private D.C. practice. So when she's asked to represent the prime suspect in the Molly Buchanan murder, the opportunity seems too good to pass up.
Two years earlier, Todd Buchanan, son of a powerful Washington family, fled the country in a desperate attempt to avoid being arrested for his wife's murder. Now he wants to clear his name -- and he wants Kate to do it. But the case comes with a price -- for the victim is the sister of detective Mitch Calhoon, the new man in Kate's life. Now Kate is faced with a harrowing choice.
Convinced a miscarriage of justice has occurred, she accepts the case and enters the powerful corridors of the nation's capital, where secrets remain hidden at all costs -- even if it means murder. But time is running out and the moment of truth has arrived . . .
