I loved it." (BECKY MASTERMAN, author of Fear the Darkness DID HE, OR DIDN'T HE?). Olivia Randall is one of New York City's best criminal defence lawyers. When she gets a phone call informing her that her former fiancee has been arrested for a triple homicide there is no doubt in her mind as to his innocence. The only question is who would go to such great lengths to frame him - and why? For Olivia, representing Jack is a way to make up for past regrets, and the hurt she caused him, but as the evidence against him mounts, she is forced to confront her doubts.
Twenty years ago she ruined his life. Now she has the chance to save it.
