The newshound in reporter Geneva Chase spurs her to bad if not downright dangerous choices as two unrelated crimes unexpectedly collide. She is a very human protagonist who stumbles while striving. During the chilling end game she comes to the horrible realization that she’s in over her head. The second novel in the Geneva Chase Mystery Series, hurtles along at a breakneck speed where nothing is what it seems, and where art and reality collide in a terrifying climax.
