In 1982, teenage Maggie Slade was convicted of murdering her mother.
After nine years in prison for a crime she didn't commit, she escaped
and spent six years on the run searching for the real killer. Now she
has the bad luck to encounter the policeman who found the murder weapona
gun with her fingerprints. Sean McLeod is also running, from a failed
marriage and a rapidly disintegrating career in law enforcement. Will
he turn her in? Or will he help her pin down the guilty person? Cresswell
(Desires & Deceptions) is arguably the star of Mira's large stable of
writers; her woman-in-jeopardy plots are tightly woven with no loose
ends. A powerful romance, combined with seat-of-the-pants tension and
a surprising last-minute twist, make this fast-paced story another winner.
