From the internationally bestselling Jonathan Kellerman comes an explosive thriller featuring detective Petra Connor.
When beautiful Lisa Boehlinger Ramsey is found brutally stabbed to death in LA s Griffin Park, Detective Petra Connor and her partner Stu Bishop investigate. Lisa had publicly revealed that her ex-husband, millionaire TV star Cart Ramsey had beaten her, making him the prime suspect. Still, Petra and Stu must tread carefully; the top brass don t want a repeat of the OJ Simpson scenario on their hands.
But there s a witness. Twelve-year-old Billy Straight, too frightened to come forward. And when Lisa s parents put a reward out on Billy, only Petra realises the true extent of the danger he is in. She must act quickly if this little boy is not to be wiped out
