Kelly was a pro until his niece was murdered right before his eyes. His family says he failed her, but Kelly can’t share his one shocking, secret—and criminal—act of vengeance.
Now, fellow detectives digging in another case can end Kelly’s career and send him to jail. Kelly must ignore this looming doom and focus on protecting a boy from his pedophile father in a slam-dunk trial. Except the hotshot defense attorney is his new girlfriend Rachel Cohen, who shares wonderful news but hides her duty to destroy him on the stand. And she can’t reveal that she’s investigating a twisted team of drug cops. While his friends work in secret to save him, Kelly is forced to the breaking point—and beyond.
“A terrific first novel that combines non-stop action…and a hero to restore your faith in heroes”
–Christina Kovac, author of “The Cutaway”
