Shay Cooper was good at her job. As an FBI agent she broke criminals—until they broke her.
Recovery seems unlikely until her mentor proposes she return to work at the training academy near her hometown of Chicago. Life in the slow lane definitely appeals, but her contentment lasts only until she meets the academy’s biggest challenge: Agent Kate Harris.
Kate Harris has made her mistakes and carries her own secrets. Her former partner—a brilliant profiler and author of true crime blockbusters—has disappeared. She’s determined to find him, orders for more training be damned. The horror she uncovers collides with Shay’s own nightmarish past. The only thing they agree on is that they can’t trust anyone, not even each other.
Sara Marx, author of the breakout hit Before I Died, returns with an unforgettable thriller teeming with the risks of passion and love.
