Abstract:

Sentenced to death for crimes he didn't commit, ex-cop Tom O'Brien is now a hunted fugitive. after fifteen years in prison, he's determined to prove his innocence - but first he must convince his daughter, whose testimony helped put him behind bars, that he has damming evidence of a plot to frame him. Claire is no longer the naive teenager who arrived home to find her mother and her mother's lover shot dead and her father holding the murder weapon. She's a successful fraud investigator who assumes everyone lies. Though Claire is convinced of her father's guilt, curiosity propels her to look into the disappearance of a law student who claimed to have proof of Tom's innocence. But seeking answers only leads to more questions, reinforcing Claire's belief that there's no one left to trust. Obsessed with the O'Brien case, FBI agent Mitch Bianchi befriends Claire under false pretenses, certain that Tom is not only innocent, but in grave danger - and not just from the cops. As the three race toward the truth a murderous conspiracy tightens its noose - and Claire becomes the target of an ice-cold psychopath who will kill to protect his secrets.
