Description


Tough. Unflappable. Stubborn. Crazy? Everyone, even her husband, believes Lily Caldwell went off the deep end when her partner Danny died in a mysterious shooting that nearly killed her, too. Based on the life-changing vision she experienced while technically dead, the thirty-year-old police officer is convinced that Governor "Nob" Stevens is the killer. Kicked off the police force and separated from her husband because of her convictions, Lily is forced to investigate the governor on her own. The trail is cold until Lily's husband returns with a compelling piece of information that breathes new life into the case and their crumbling marriage.
Shocking family secrets, blind ambition, betrayal, love, and forgiveness propel these captivating characters toward a startling revelation that also brings healing.
