Secret, betrayal, and a mysterious family history plague
the heroine in the latest novel from New York Times-
bestselling author Karen Robards.
The past is never over. It just gets dusty.
Lisa Shewmaker was a rising star in a prestigious law firm
in Lexington, Kentucky; that is, until the firm went
bankrupt and she lost her job. With an ailing mother to
care for, Lisa takes the first position she can find:
research assistant to District Attorney Scott Buchanan.
Scott is as disagreeable as he is sexy, and Lisa suspects
the only reason she got the job is because of her
privileged upbringing as the daughter of a wealthy federal
While reviewing cold cases in the Fayette County
courthouse, a particularly thick manila envelope draws
Lisa's attention. The details of the case are engrossing:
An entire family-father, mother, and two children-
disappeared more than twenty-eight years ago. Except that's
not all: The mother in the photo could have been Lisa's
twin, and the toddler in the picture bears an uncanny
resemblance to Lisa herself. Before Lisa can learn more
about her past, a series of catastrophes strike close to
home. Lisa confides in Scott, and their relationship
develops into something completely different. Together Lisa
and Scott unravel a terrifying web of criminal connections
that could destroy the very fabric of Lisa's life-if she
lives long enough, that is.
