Margaret's health is declining rapidly due to the injury she suffered from Dr. Wu and when she dies, she wants to leave some money to Nina and Nina's brother, Matt, a recovering drug addict. Nina knows the emotional cost of a lawsuit but her mother is determined, so Nina recommends that she consult Remy Sorensen, a brilliant lawyer who is everything Nina aspires to be.
Then a woman falls to her death from Bixby Creek Bridge at Big Sur. Is her death an accident or a suicide? The authorities seem satisfied that there's no evidence of foul play, but Nina is convinced it is an act of murder and embarks on her own quest for the truth. Stirring up trouble, Nina catches the killer's attention, witnesses die, and the only "official" help Nina gets is from homicide cop Paul Van Wagoner. Nina's investigations lead nowhere until she recognizes a crucial, overlooked fact: sometimes people keep their true feelings and desires secret, even from the people who love them.
Providing fascinating new insight into the character of Nina Reilly, this new novel keeps listeners on the edge of their seats as it explores the hidden mysteries of the heart and positions Perri O'Shaughnessy as one of the most original and powerful thriller authors writing today.
