Assistant D.A. Kate Megason is about to prosecute the case of her career when someone starts sending her terrifying messages. Someone who obviously knows her deep, dark secret. Now, she needs the help of Frank Matrone–an investigator with his own shadowy past–or else Kate may have no chance of surviving a killer’s brutal wrath.
Kate Megason is an assistant DA. She loves her job and is too dedicated to it. As a 17-year-old she and her twin were brutalized, with her sister ending up in a convalescent home and her with guilt and her life changed forever. Frank Matrone was a cop, he was also a reservist when he was injured badly in Jerusalem and lost the woman he loved. He wallows in his grief and pain and also suffers from chronic pain so bad that he mixes his pills and alcohol. His friends seeing his condition offer him a chance, to work as an investigator in the DA’s office.
As they are forced to spend more and more time together researching the case the start to get under each other’s skins, every way they turn irritating the other, all the while the office has started a betting pool of when they will end up together.
