Blair Harbour, brilliant pediatric surgeon, convicted murder. She’s been out of prison for one year and works at gas station convenience store – the only job she could get.
One night-shift, Harbour is held up at gunpoint by a terrified young woman. A visit by her former cellmate ‘Sneak’ a few days later reveals that it was her daughter who committed the crime. Now she’s missing.
Meantime, Detective Jessica Sanchez has inherited a $7-Million dollar home as a result of solving a cold-case. She’s the detective who put Harbour behind bars. Reviled by her department and despondent, she looks at the case again. She’s unsure that Harbour’s coviction was the correct outcome.
There is so much going on in this book. It’s complex with provocative, quirky characters, stirring scenarios, heartfelt interraction, and dangerous acquaintances. In a word – fantastic.

Her bestselling Crimson Lake series based in Australia, will be made into a TV series starring Thomas Jane.
