Publisher's Summary

Martha "Marty" Nickerson, an assistant district attorney on Cape Cod, speaks for victims of crime and their families and sees the system as a means for doing right. After she wins a murder case, a suspect is put behind bars. But soon another body turns up in disturbingly similar circumstances. Did Marty and her colleagues target the wrong man? Her supervisor refuses to reopen such a high-profile case. Why should they? The prosecutors played by the rules and won big. But Marty fears that the real killer will strike again.With her career on the line and lives at stake, Marty must rely on her own moral compass, legal savvy, and gut instinct as she matches wits with a twisted killer. The system itself is on trial as Marty tries to serve justice, not merely the law.

Excellent tight story!

Great characters, great story, MANY plot twists, never trite. I now have to listen to all her books. Good narrator too.
