Book Summary

When rookie lawyer Jessica Monaghan gets the call from John Riordan, the senior partner at the illustrious law firm for which she works, she thinks the plum assignment he offers her might be a life-changing moment. And she’s right, it is - only not in the way she hopes. It’s late on a Saturday night, and Riordan is busy - and, Jess can tell, well on his way to being drunk. He needs Jess to meet First Lady Annette Cooper, for whom Riordan is a personal lawyer, at a Washington, D.C., hotel.

Although she has no memory about the events leading up to the accident, Jess still wonders: Was it really an accident? The FBI agent on the case, Mark Ryan, senses Jess is hiding something. As Ryan’s suspicions grow, Jess’s world starts falling apart. Riordan suddenly dies of a heart attack, and his personal secretary also dies in a car accident on the way to his funeral. In fact, everyone who might possibly know the details about the First Lady’s meeting is dead. And then Jess understands: if she remembers that night, she’ll be dead too.

Terrified and certain the First Lady’s death was no accident, Jess has only Mark Ryan to turn to. ...
