"A crime novel that transcends the genre—a twisting, high-stakes story with characters so real and so recognizably human, that it breaks your heart a little. Brilliant."
-Shari Lapena, author of the New York Times bestseller The Couple Next Door

Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn, now happily settled in Tucson, doesn’t visit her family in Florida much. But her former partner on the force, Laura Coleman—a woman whose life she has saved and who has saved her life in turn—is living there now. So when Laura calls about a case that is not going well, Brigid doesn’t hesitate to get on a plane.

On leave from the Bureau, Laura has been volunteering for a legal group trying to prove the innocence of a man who is on death row for killing his family. Laura is firmly convinced that he didn’t do it, while Brigid isn’t so sure—but the date for his execution is coming up so quickly that they’ll have to act fast to find any evidence that may absolve him before it’s too late…

Edgar Award and CWA Gold Dagger finalist Becky Masterman’s third Brigid Quinn audiobook is the masterful follow-up to Fear the Darkness and Rage Against the Dying.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The most original new female character to anchor a crime series in years.”

    New York Times on Fear the Darkness

  • "Fans of the Brigid Quinn mystery series will be delighted to hear Suzanne Toren's narration of the third book. ...Toren has a knack for realistic pacing in the midst of intense conversation and leaves the listener guessing whether Coleman is emotionally unstable or simply very forceful in her efforts to exonerate the man convicted of killing his family. Quinn may be feisty and capable, but Toren also portrays her vulnerability in dealing with her father's imminent death. AudioFile
