Up-and-coming attorney Leigh Larson fights for victims of sexual extortion, harassment, and online abuse. Unafraid to go after the sleaziest targets to get payback for her clients, she’s laser-focused on her career—to the exclusion of everything else—until a seemingly routine case and a determined cop turn her world upside down. Austin homicide detective Brandon Reynolds is no stranger to midnight callouts. But when he gets summoned to an abandoned car on a desolate road, he quickly realizes he’s dealing with an unusual crime scene. A pool of blood in the nearby woods suggests a brutal homicide. But where is the victim? The vehicle is registered to twenty-six-year-old Vanessa Adams, but all he finds in his search of the car is a smear of blood and a business card for Leigh Larson, attorney-at-law. Vanessa had hired Leigh just before her disappearance, but Leigh has no leads on who could have wanted her dead. Faced with bewildering evidence and shocking twists, Leigh and Brandon must work together against the clock to chase down a ruthless criminal who is out for vengeance.
