Tears dripped on the unopened envelope as she thought, “How many lives have I just destroyed with my selfishness? How can I possibly look anyone in the face again?”

With the help of veteran police detective, Sam Davidson, Richard works to find the identity of the real killer before it is too late.

As doors once locked shut begin to open, the past rushes forward bringing love, lust, jealousy, betrayal, and murder. The race is on to catch the real killer before everyone Angela knows and loves are killed.
