Rachel Boyd was just a child when she was found guilty of killing her little playmate, Freddie Gant. Now, after thirty years in reform school and adult prison, she is finally free...until another young boy is found dead in Denver -- and Rachel seems to be the likely suspect.
Enter criminal attorney Jackie Flowers. Convicted child killers are not her favorite clients. Still, everyone deserves a good defense. Question is: Can Jackie trust Rachel enough to stay in her home while they prepare their case? And what about Jackie's own personal demons -- her dyslexia, her ex-lover and civil litigator Dennis Ross, her paralyzing fear of heights? Is she fit to handle the pressures of a high-profile trial? Will her past come back to haunt her? Or worse: Will Rachel's?
