Bestselling author Cara Putman returns with a romantic legal thriller that will challenge the assumptions of truth tellers everywhere.
Savannah Daniels has worked hard to build her law practice, to surround herself with good friends, and to be the loyal aunt her troubled niece can always count on. But since her ex-husband’s betrayal, she has trouble trusting anyone.
Jett Glover’s father committed suicide over a false newspaper report that ruined his reputation. Now a fierce champion of truth, Jett is writing the story of his journalism career—an international sex-trafficking exposé that will bring down a celebrity baseball player and the men closest to him, including Savannah’s ex-husband.
When Jett’s story breaks, tragedy ensues. Then a commercial airline crashes, and one of Savannah’s clients is implicated in the crash. Men connected to the scandal, including her ex, begin to die amid mysterious circumstances, and Savannah’s niece becomes an unwitting target. Against their better instincts, Jett and Savannah join ranks to sort the facts from fiction. But can Savannah trust the reporter who threw her life into chaos? And can Jett face the possibility that he’s made the biggest mistake of his life?

This is an increasingly intense legal thriller filled with pulse-pounding suspense and a gentle sprinkling of romance. The author’s casual writing style welcomes you into facing the tough topic of sex trafficking in a way that brings awareness to such a serious and traumatic issue without being graphic or gratuitous. The touches of faith provided the much needed calm within the sea of so much illegal activity, betrayal, and greed. Religious nuances became an encouraging beacon of hope even in the face of true evil.
The quest for the truth drives the actions of these deeply dynamic characters that readers will become highly invested in. Not only do the personal interactions between Savannah and Jett hint at their vulnerabilities, but their professional involvement demonstrates their respect and admiration for one another. A history of family dysfunction and distress adds emotional understanding to their internal conflicts, while their conversations with each other shine profound light on the blossoming relationship that they are gradually willing to open themselves up to.
The author’s legal background adds an authentic voice to a book that is compulsively readable. Multiple story-lines converge with twists and turns that were definitely hard to see coming! This fast-paced and well written plot was fascinating to read and really set some high expectations for the author’s previous books that I look forward to reading soon!
