stand-alone domestic suspense thriller perfect for fans of

Disaster is always closer than you
It was a lesson Melanie Barrick learned the hard way growing
up in the constant upheaval of foster care. But now that
sheâ€™s survived into adulthoodâ€”with a loving husband, a
steady job, and a beautiful baby boy named Alexâ€”she thought
that turmoil was behind her.
Until one Tuesday evening when she goes to pick up Alex from
childcare only to discover heâ€™s been removed by Social
Services. And no one will say why. Itâ€™s a terrifying
scenario for any parent, but doubly so for Melanie, who
knows the unintended horrors of what everyone coldly calls
Her nightmare grows worse when she arrives home to learn her
house has been raided by sheriffâ€™s deputies, who have found
enough cocaine to send Melanie to prison for years. The
evidence against her is overwhelming, and if Melanie canâ€™t
prove her innocence, sheâ€™ll lose Alex forever.
Meanwhile, assistant commonwealthâ€™s attorney Amy Kayeâ€”who
has been assigned Melanieâ€™s caseâ€”has her own troubles. Sheâ€™s
been dogged by a cold case no one wants her to pursue: a
serial rapist who has avoided detection by wearing a mask
and whispering his commands. Over the years, he has
victimized dozens of women.
Including Melanie. Yet now her attacker might be the key to
her salvation... or her undoing.
