Publisher's Summary

Ten years working as a prosecutor have left Meredith Delay jaded and unsure of what she wants out of life. She's good at her job, but it haunts her. Her boyfriend wants her to commit, but she keeps him at arm's length. Then Meredith is assigned to a high-profile prosecution involving the violent murder of a fallen hockey star. At first, it appears to be just another case to work. But when her old friend Julian is accused of the murder, it takes on a whole new dimension.
Meredith, Julian, Jonathan, and Lily were a tight-knit group in law school. But now, Jonathan's defending Julian, and Lily's loyalties aren't clear. And when Julian invokes a rare - and risky - defense, Meredith is forced to confront their past. Has something they played at as students finally been brought to death?

The story of the pathetic protagonist

The protagonist, a female prosecutor in her early 30s, lacks emotional maturity. The murder game is a legal thriller without the thrill, or maybe it's a suspense thriller without the suspense or the thrill. Author Catherine McKenzie bets everything on a surprise twist at the end, only the twist is not a surprise because she gave it away earlier.
