In Patricia Potter’s seductive novel of romantic suspense, the violent secret in a woman’s life sets her daughter on a desperate search for the truth—and a collision course with a killer from the past
When Liz Connor’s mother doesn’t come home, her father fears the worst. But Betty isn’t missing—she’s just been arrested by the FBI. Her real name is Sarah Jane Maynard and she is a fugitive and former antiwar protestor wanted for a double homicide.
Within hours, the Connor family implodes. Sarah Jane refuses to speak to her husband and daughter or to assist in her own defense. A mysterious fire and a frightening abduction convince Liz that something else is going on . . . something to do with the money that went missing during that long-ago crime. And now two strangers have appeared to offer their help: handsome, politically connected Michael Gallagher and rugged Boston-cop-turned-PI Caleb Adams.
As Liz fights to uncover the truth and clear her mother’s name, she moves deeper into the sights of a killer who will strike again in order to bury the past forever.
