One cold November night when Kate White was fifteen years old, her friends held up a store. One of them killed an off-duty cop. They got away with it.
Thirteen years later, Kate has built a new life for herself as a mother and prosecutor. Until the nightmare morning in her courtroom when she comes face to face with the old friend, Mario, who killed that cop so many years ago.
First it seems that Kate may have to pull some serious strings to keep her reputation intact, but then Mario is found dead in Kate’s house, and with Kate’s fingerprints on the pistol. Her life – and her son’s – are in danger.
