Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain when justice is not served. It’s why she became an attorney and why she’s so driven in her career. When she’s assigned a wrongful death case against the government, she isn’t sure if it’s the lucky break she needs to secure a partnership—or an attempt to make sure she never gets there.
Further complicating matters is Andrew, her roommate’s distractingly attractive cousin. But Andrew’s father is a Congressman, and Hayden’s currently taking on the government. Could the timing be any worse?
The longer she keeps the case active, the higher the stakes become. Unknown enemies seem determined to kill the case—or her. Logic and self-preservation would indicate she should close the case. But how can she, when justice is still just beyond her reach?
My Thoughts: I didn't realize that Cara Putman had a new novel out. So when I received this book I was surprised.
A legal thriller! If you know a little about Cara, you know that she has a law degree so this novel is like reading about one of her cases. 😊
This is a fast paced novel. Cara's knowledge of law and justice makes for a grand read.
Hayden McCarthy has had her share of loses in the judicial system. So, when she is handed a case in a wrongful death against the government she comes against a mighty hand of evil.
The case plus the action keeps the reader on her tippy toes.
The romance is low key but just enough to take the edge off a serious case.
To say that I enjoyed this novel is an understatement. I loved this novel.

Meet The Author:
Since the time I could read Nancy Drew, I have wanted to write mysteries. In 2005 I attended a book signing at my local Christian bookstore. The rest, as they say, is history. There I met Colleen Coble. With prompting from my husband, I shared my dream with Colleen. Since those infamous words, I've been writing award-winning books with the count currently at 25.
In addition to writing, I am a homeschooling mom of four, attorney, lecturer at a Big Ten university, active in women's ministry, and all around crazy woman. Crazy about God, my husband, and my kids. I graduated with honors from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Huskers!), George Mason Law School, and Purdue University's MBA program.
