Struggling to pull together the pieces of her life after another falling out with Ohio’s most powerful political dynasty, Casey Cort turns her attention toward her budding relationship with rising assistant U.S. Attorney Miles Siegel. Things come to an abrupt halt when circumstances catapult them onto the scene of a horrific crime.
Miles investigates the identity of an unlikely criminal mastermind, known on the street as Sledge Hammer. Meanwhile Casey discovers she may hold the key to solve the crime—and to the freedom of innocent women and children in the sex trafficking ring. Can Miles and Casey put the clues together to solve the mystery before the trail runs cold?
In this continuation of the Casey Cort series, Aime Austin—a former trial lawyer in Cleveland—weaves a tale that blends the best of today’s top legal thrillers with the heart and soul of women’s fiction, in a story ripped from real-world headlines.
