Former federal prosecutor and critically acclaimed author Allison Leotta's spellbinding thriller follows prosecutor Anna Curtis as she heads home to Michigan to defend her sister in a case that will bring her to her knees.
Newly single after calling off her wedding, sex-crimes prosecutor Anna Curtis is summoned home to Michigan when her old high school coach - a hometown hero - is killed in a fiery car crash. But Anna isn't there to prosecute a crime; she's home to support her innocent sister Jody, who has been wrongfully accused of the coach's murder.
But maybe Jody isn't so innocent after all? The police are convinced that Jody was having an affair with the married coach and killed him out of jealousy. As Anna investigates with the help of her childhood friend, Cooper Bolden - an Afghan War veteran with a secret of his own - she slowly peels back the facade of her all-American hometown and discovers that no one is telling the truth about the coach, not even the people she thought she knew best.
When the town rallies against them, threatening not just Jody's liberty but both sisters' lives, Anna resolves to do everything she can to save her sister and defend the only family she has left.
In her best book yet, Leotta, "a highly entertaining storyteller" (George Pelecanos), explores the limits of vigilante justice, the bonds of sisterhood, and the value of the truth.

Very good narration.
Nope - I'm not a writer!
I might not have finished it if I was reading instead-of listening. The narration always plays a big part for me.
Loved the ending - didn't see it all coming - parts yes but not all.
"Loved it ! Loved it !"
My review is get all the Anna Curtis series ! Just enjoyable ! Waiting on #5 , don't disappoint me, Allison Leotta!
"Okay plot narration a distraction"
Plot was ok. There were some interesting twists but many seemed pretty unrealistic. I wish there'd had been more attention to legal ins and outs and realistic logistical challenges these characters might face and a bit less on their romantic lives.
Narration was a huge distraction. The change in voice from the older sister to the younger was pretty awful. Despite the fact that the younger sister is a grown woman, she was voiced like a high pitched ten-year-old. Even worse was the profound mispronunciation of most things Michigan. The narrator managed to pronounce Detroit correctly but any other Michigan location was butchered. I picked this title in part because of the Michigan location since I was on a trip to Lake Michigan. Seeing as the pronunciation information is readily available in a quick internet search, it seems like a fairly lame oversight by the narrator or her production team. All the mistakes (bizarrely pronouncing Lake Heron as if it was Here-in) took me right out of the story each time it came up.
Oh well, you win some you loose some. I was interested enough to to listen to the end but won't be recommending it to any friends.
"FINALLY a good story line!"
Great book! Interesting subject topic. The only complaint I would have is that the narrator made the sister's voice really air-head sounding which was not reflective of the character.
Very good story all way to end. Will try other books as well of author .keeps reader engaged & guessing!
