#1 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson creates her most electrifying thriller to date, as a mother's unspeakable crime sparks a new killing spree... The most hated woman in Savannah, Georgia, is about to be set free. Twenty years ago, Blondell O'Henry was convicted of murdering her eldest daughter and wounding her two other children. The prosecution argued that beautiful, selfish Blondell wanted to be rid of them to be with her lover. Now Blondell's son, Niall, has recanted his testimony and demolished the case in the process. Reporter Nikki Gillette is determined to get the true story, and not just for professional reasons. Blondell's murdered daughter, Amity, was Nikki's childhood friend. The night she died, Amity begged Nikki to meet with her, insisting she had a secret to tell, but Nikki didn't go. Her guilt is compounded by other complications--Nikki's favorite uncle, Alexander, was the attorney who helped save Blondell from execution. And rumors swirl that he was one of her many lovers. Nikki's fiance, Detective Pierce Reed, is concerned she may be compromising the case. As she digs for answers during one of the most sweltering summers in Savannah's history, he also worries for her safety. Everyone involved seems to have secrets, from Blondell's old boyfriend and his fundamentalist, snake-handling in-laws to the cop who led the original investigation. And somehow, the events of that tragic night connect to Nikki's own fractured family. But now the killing has begun again. Is Amity's murderer still at large, or is this a new, darker danger? Soon Nikki will discover what really happened twenty years ago, but the answers may come too late to save her life...

Booklist Review: "Everyone loved Nikki Gillette's first two true-crime books, but Nikki's agent turned her latest proposal down flat since it lacks the up-close-and-personal touch of her other books. While desperately scrambling for a new idea, Nikki learns that notorious Blondell O'Henry is about to be released from prison. Twenty years earlier, Blondell was convicted of killing her daughter Amity and seriously wounding her other two children. Not only had Nikki been one of Amity's friends in high school; her uncle was Blondell's attorney, and Nikki's fiance Savannah police detective Pierce Reed is reinvestigating the Blondell case, which makes it the perfect choice for her next book. However, as soon as Nikki begins digging into the past, she discovers that someone else is equally determined to keep her from finding any real dirt. In the third entry in her Savannah series, best-seller Jackson gives a subtle literary nod to Ann Rule's true-crime classic Small Sacrifices (1987), and the spookily atmospheric plot is jam-packed with scary chills and sexy thrills.--Charles, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "A case that true crime author Nikki Gillette is considering for her next book strikes too close to home in bestseller Jackson's loosely constructed third romantic suspense novel set in Savannah, Ga. (after 2004's The Morning After). Notorious Blondell O'Henry was convicted 20 years earlier of killing her pregnant teenage daughter, Amity, and seriously wounding her two younger children, Niall, then eight, whose testimony was key to the prosecution, and Blythe, then five. Now Niall recants his testimony, which means Blondell may soon be free. Amity was Nikki's best friend, and Nikki's uncle was Blondell's lawyer. Now Nikki's fiance, Det. Pierce Reed, and his police partner are charged with reviewing the evidence against Blondell. As Nikki probes the O'Henry family past, she encounters people, both sleazy and respectable, with secrets-and someone who's willing to kill to keep those secrets hidden. Readers new to Jackson should be prepared for cliche-ridden prose and strained plotting. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
