Publisher Description

In this spellbinding new novel of suspense from New York Times bestselling author James Grippando, Miami's top prosecutor becomes a prime suspect in his wife's disappearance, which may have a chilling connection to the woman he can't forget.

Unbelievable was the word for her. Samantha Vine was unbelievably beautiful. It was unbelievable that she'd married me. Even more unbelievable that she was gone. . . .

Samantha died too soon. Abe Beckham's new wife has helped him through the loss, but some say it was a step back for Abe to marry Angelina, a love from his past. Abe doesn't want to hear it, and he's even managed to remain a star prosecutor at the Miami State Attorney's Office through his ups and downs.

Then everything goes wrong. A woman's body is discovered dumped in the Everglades, and Abe is called upon to monitor the investigation. The FBI is tracking a killer in South Florida they call "Cutter" because his brutal methods hark back to Florida's dark past, when machete-wielding men cut sugarcane by hand in the blazing sun.

When Angelina goes missing, the respected attorney finds himself under fire. Suspicion surrounds him. His closest friends, family, professional colleagues, and the media no longer trust his motives. Was Angelina right? Was their marriage not what they'd hoped for because he loved Samantha too much? Or was there another woman . . . and a husband with a dark side who simply wanted his new wife gone?

    - Linda Fairstein, New York Times bestselling author of Silent Mercy
  • “Everything you crave in a crime novel: a complicated but winning protagonist, a puzzling murder, and the kind of ending that just plain wallops you.”

    - Kate White, New York Times bestselling author of If Looks Could Kill
  • “Spellbinding.”

    - Huffington Post
  • “Suspenseful…moves at a brisk pace, with surprising twists and acutely drawn characters. Grippando poignantly illustrates a disintegrating marriage, allowing the reader to understand both Abe and Angelina’s side.”

    - South Florida Sun Sentinel
  • “Gripping…Grippando keeps the tension high.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Another fine stand-alone from the author of the Jack Swyteck legal thrillers…Grippando writes the heck out of this labyrinthine story, keeping us flipping the pages at a frantic pace, trying to figure out what’s going on here. Abe is a very well-drawn character—we’re not quite sure whether we should like him or not—and somehow Grippando manages to answer all of the story’s questions without making the end of the book feel contrived. Very nicely done.”

    - Booklist
  • “A stand-alone from the creator of adventurous lawyer Jack Swyteck that plumbs a Miami prosecutor’s nightmare when a serial killer strikes a little too close to home…Grippando supplies a satisfyingly wild ride through Presumed Innocent territory.”

    - Kirkus Reviews
  • “Grippando has been at the top of the legal-thriller ladder for some time.”

    - US News & World Report, praise for the author
  • “Narrator Jonathan Davis conveys the shifting tension in this mystery…Delivering realistically nuanced voices, Davis uses subtle shifts in tone for female characters and mild but distinct voices for male characters. As the tension rises, Davis’ voice reflects Beckham’s increasing anxiety as the tables turn in his pursuit of a serial killer. Davis’ narration keeps the pace appropriate to to the action and the characters sympathetic while bringing the story to its gripping conclusion.”
