Meet lawyer Kate Lange. She has one chance to prove herself—and to prove to herself that she can make it—in a firm where everyone wants her to fail. But landing this job is what Kate believes will lead to redemption in the tragic death of her sister years ago. Instead, Kate makes the biggest mistake of her career… and becomes the target of a serial killer.

“Saying it’s action-packed is a bit of an understatement. It’s the kind of book you buy on Friday and stay up all night reading.” —The Chronicle Herald 

Haunted by the death of her sister and wounded by her ex-fiancé’s accusations, lawyer Kate Lange throws herself into her new career at a high-powered law firm. When the grandmother of a lonely private school student seeks her counsel, Kate thinks it’s just another custody case. But then the teen is brutally murdered. And it isn’t only Kate who wonders if her legal advice led to the girl’s death.

James Rollins, #1 New York Times Bestselling author

“…this debut novel by a member of the Nova Scotia bar is one utterly complete, complex and convincing book that has one hooked from the first line…while this is a thriller, well-written and with a great plot, it is one that defies categorising. While the mystery may be medical with sophisticated and high technology required to improve lives, it’s dark and dangerously suspenseful…”
