Available in: Paperback, Audio, e-Book (reprint)
New York Times bestselling author Allison Brennan introduces an irrepressible, unforgettable, and notorious new heroine in her latest pulse-pounding thriller.
Maxine Revere has dedicated her life to investigating murders that the police have long since given up any hope of solving. A nationally renowned, tough-as-nails investigative reporter with her own TV show, Max tackles cold cases from across the country and every walk of life. But the one unsolved murder that still haunts her is a case from her own past.
When she was a high school senior, a close friend was strangled and another, Kevin, was accused of the crime. Max stood by Kevin—until she found out he lied about his alibi. Though his guilt was never proven, their relationship crumbled from the strain of too many secrets. But that was years ago…and now Max is home for Kevin’s funeral. Did he kill himself after years of drug abuse—or did someone else do the deed? As Max uncovers some dark secrets about Kevin’s past she finds herself caught in a complicated web of lies that hit far too close to home. And it’s becoming increasingly clear that someone will do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried…
Originally published March 2014 in hardcover and eBook by Minotaur Books.
