Detective Carly Edwards hates working in juvenile—where the brass put her after an officer-involved shooting—and longs to be back on patrol. So when a troubled youth, Londy Atkins, is arrested for the murder of the mayor and Carly is summoned to the crime scene, she's eager for some action. Carly presses Londy for a confession but he swears his innocence, and despite her better judgment, Carly is inclined to believe him. Yet homicide is convinced of his guilt and is determined to convict him.

Carly's ex-husband and fellow police officer, Nick, appears to be on her side. He's determined to show Carly that he's a changed man and win her back, but she isn't convinced he won't betray her again.

As the investigation progresses, Carly suspects a cover-up and strikes out on her own, uncertain whom she can trust. But when danger mounts, she begins to wonder if she made the right choice.


I love a great suspense novel and was super excited to read a cop suspense novel written by an actual cop.  I have to say that this book caught my attention from the beginning and kept me entertained and enguffed til the end.  It had a lot of twists and turns and even a surprise at the end.

The main character, Carly struggles with her beliefs and you get to read the whole trial and tribulation along the way.  All the while wondering if she will let God take the lead and help her learn to trust again.  It is a great suspense book and also a great book for a tested soul. 

This is the first book in the series and is setting up to be an exciting new book series by Ms. Cantore.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series, ABDUCTED.  I recommend this book for anyone who loves a great suspense novel and / or is struggling with trust issues.  This book will be a great read for you and is sure to keep you interested from start to finish.  The book is available at select bookstores and online at for $ 11.51.
