How far would you go to protect the ones you love?
Nine out of ten murders are committed by someone the victim knows. So when Steph Ryder is found dead, D.S. Allie Shenton begins her investigations close to home, starting with Steph’s family and friends.
As each of the suspects scrambles to cover up their actions on that fateful night, Allie homes in on Steph’s husband Terry. Soon, she finds herself powerfully attracted to the ambitious and charming businessman, risking not only her marriage but her job and the investigation itself.
As the trail grows hotter, Allie finds that nothing is as it seems: secrets and lies begin to escalate and the body count begins to rise. Can Allie uncover the truth before she, too, becomes a victim?
