The most hated woman in Savannah, Georgia, is about to be set
free. Twenty years ago, beautiful Blondell O'Henry was convicted of
murdering her eldest daughter, Amity, and wounding her two other
children. The prosecution argued that Blondell wanted to be rid of
them to be with her lover. But Blondell's son has now recanted his
crucial testimony. . .
Reporter Nikki Gillette is determined to get the truth, and this
time it's personal. Amity was her childhood friend. The night she
died, Amity begged Nikki to meet with her, insisting she had a
secret to tell, but Nikki didn't go. Now Nikki's fiancé, Detective
Pierce Reed, worries for her safety. Because somehow, the events of
that tragic night connect to Nikki's own fractured family.
Is Amity's murderer still at large, or is there a new, darker
danger? Soon Nikki will discover what really happened two decades
ago, but the answers may come too late to save her life.
