It was called a haven for runaway teens. In truth, it was a nightmare, one that
ended in fiery violence sixteen years ago. Or so its survivors believed…
Syracuse news anchor Julie Jones is afraid. Her long-dead past was resurrected when a
blackmailer threatened to expose secrets that could destroy her. Then the man was found
dead—his throat cut with a knife from Julie's own kitchen. Now a new, faceless enemy wants
more than money. This time Julie stands to lose the most precious thing of all—her teenage
Julie finds herself with one unlikely ally, Sean MacKenzie. A journalist with a flair for
the sensational, Sean covers the worst humanity has to offer. Julie Jones is hiding
something that terrifies her, and he's determined to find out what. He just can't decide
whether his goal is to expose her or save her.
Julie will do anything to protect her daughter. But someone else is watching, willing to
do whatever it takes to avenge a past that cannot be forgotten.
