There's nothing Jilly Truitt likes more than winning a case, especially against her former mentor, prosecutor Cy Kenge. Jilly has her own baggage, the residue of a dark time in a series of foster homes, but that's in the past.… Now she's building her own criminal defense firm and making a name for herself as a feisty, tough-as-nails lawyer willing to take risks in the courtroom. When the affluent and enigmatic Vincent Trussardi is accused of his wife Laura's murder, Jilly agrees to defend him, despite predictions that the case is a sure loser and warnings from those close to her to stay away from the Trussardi family. Determined to prove everyone wrong, Jilly investigates Laura's death, hoping to discover a shred of evidence that might give the jury a reasonable doubt. But she is confronted by damning evidence and uncooperative witnesses at every turn. Someone isn't telling the truth, but whom? With her reputation and Vincent's life on the line, Jilly tries to unravel the web of secrets surrounding Laura's murder. But every answer leads to another mystery, and as Jilly digs deeper, she uncovers a startling revelation that will change not only the case, but her life forever. Bestseller. 2018.
