Camille Grisham was once a decorated field agent with the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit. Her job was to solve the country’s most complex and violent crimes, often with little more than a textbook profile of the perpetrator to go on. No one did it better. But after her partner’s death at the hands of a sadistic mass murderer, she has become a broken shell of her former self.
Forced to leave the Bureau under the weight of guilt, Camille returns to her hometown of Denver, hopeful that the presence of family and friends can heal the wounds that time could not. Unfortunately, a change in scenery does not bring about a change in fortune. Less than 24 hours after her arrival home, Camille is left to deal with yet another tragic loss – the brutal murder of her best friend in an apparent home invasion.
For local police, the case is open and shut. For Camille it is anything but.
Desperate for answers, she becomes an unwitting participant in an investigation that winds through the darkest corridors of wealth, power, and political corruption. All the while a killer waits patiently in the shadows, watching Camille’s every move.
With the help of a young homicide detective whose doubts about her department’s case increase by the second, Camille must race to uncover the true motives behind her friend’s murder, even though she knows that doing so will put her on an inevitable collision course with a past that she desperately wants to leave behind.
