Maxine “Max” Revere is tough, smart, focused, relentless, and doesn’t suffer fools well. These characteristics work well for the well-known, well-respected investigative journalist. They also lead her into more trouble than she could ever imagine. When she turns her lens on Adam Bachman, who is on trial for a series of murders, she opens doors to her past, her family, and her own weaknesses. Was Bachman a lone killer or did he have a helper? More than one helper? Max believes so. Few buy her theories and as she tries to prove them wrong, she discovers things are not as she suspects. Not even close. Was this all a set up? A trap just for her? And if so, why? And by whom?

This is a well-plotted, crisply written thriller that is impossible to put down. Highly recommended.
