A determined, down-on-her-luck mother caring for her
handicapped son becomes entangled in a murderous conspiracy to keep a
twenty-year-old secret buried in this blistering thriller set during the tragic
aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, from New York Times bestselling author Andrew
While driving along a suburban back road, Hilary Blum, who’s
just lost her job and whose deadbeat husband has left her alone to care for her
son with Asperger’s, witnesses a freakish accident. A car ahead of her careens
down a hill and slams into a tree. Stopping to help, she discovers the driver dead—and
a satchel stuffed with half a million dollars.
That money could prevent her family’s ruin and keep her
special needs son in school. In an instant, this honest, achieving woman who
has always done the responsible thing makes a decision that puts her in the
center of maelstrom of dark consequences and life-threatening recriminations—a
terrifying scheme involving a twenty-year-old murder, an old woman whose life
has been washed out to sea, and a powerful figure bent on keeping the secret
that can destroy him hidden.
With everything to lose, everything she loves, Hilary
connects to a determined cop from Staten Island, reeling from the disaster of
Sandy, to bring down an enemy who will stop at nothing to keep what that money
was meant to silence still buried. Download and start listening now!
