After watching a murderer walk free on a technicality, Nicole Sterling left the state attorney's office to start a criminal law practice. She lets her partners handle the assault and murder files while she specializes in white-collar crime. With her own mother's life slowly slipping away before her eyes, Nicole has had about all she can take of death.
But when a client is accused of killing her own baby, Nicole is drawn in to the case. Also looking for answers is Detective Sam Bowie, a man as infuriating as he is sexy. Sparks fly between them, but the last thing Nicole has room in her life for is a romantic entanglement.
Their investigation reveals that Nicole's client could be just one of many innocent victims of a horrific conspiracy. Now, she must put her own life on the line to uncover the truth - and risk her heart - if she's to have a future with Sam.
It sounded like this might be a serious mystery dealing with a hideous crime, not just another trashy sex romp by lead characters who are easier to turn on than 17-year-old boys. A decent mystery writer could have done so much with this topic. What a waste. I gave as many stars as the amount of attention the author paid to the real plot. This is the last time I take a chance on an unknown author.
