(From the publisher):
She wants justice.
Washington television reporter Tess Abbott is the best in the business, always getting the story and the truth. When she receives an anonymous tip about a prison murder in her home state of Mississippi during a heated race for governor, Tess jumps at the chance to cover the race and uncover the truth.
He wants vengeance.
Newspaper reporter Spencer Reed is on the verge of uncovering a political scandal that could make his career--and the secrets in Tess Abbott's past hold the key. Despite the rivalry and adrenaline, focusing on the story becomes difficult when Tess receives another call that leaves her reeling.
The unsettling message stirs her memory, bringing back childhood nightmares--nightmares of murder. When a local man turns up dead--with personal information about Tess in his possession--the two journalists quickly realize there is a sinister connection between Tess's past and the election.
A killer wants them both dead.
As the pieces to the puzzle fall into place, a killer is primed to finish a job he started so long ago--a killer who will stop at nothing to bury the story . . . and them.
