According to the FBI, the most dangerous place for a woman between the ages of twenty and thirty is in a relationship with a man. Those statistics become all too personal when Jack Swyteck takes on a new client from his past, in this spellbinding tale of suspense.
It begins at the airport, where Jack is waiting to meet his old high school buddy Kevin Ingraham, a high-powered banker based in Hong Kong, coming to Miami for his young daughter's surgery. But their long-awaited reunion is abruptly derailed when the police arrest Kevin's wife, Isabelle. She is accused of conspiring to kill the man who raped her in college. Jack quickly agrees to represent Isa, but soon discovers that to see justice done, he must separate the truth from lies-an undertaking that proves more complicated than the seasoned attorney expects.
Inspired by an actual case, James Grippando's twisty thriller brilliantly explores the fine line between victim and perpetrator, innocence and guilt, and cold-blooded revenge and rightful retribution.
