Description
Selected as one of "Summer's Best of the Best" books by O, The Oprah Magazine, Allison Leotta's spellbinding thriller follows prosecutor Anna Curtis as she heads home to Michigan to defend her sister in a case that will bring her to her knees.How far would you go to save your sister? Anna Curtis is back in her hometown just outside of Detroit. Newly single after calling off her wedding, Anna isn't home to lick her wounds. She's returned to support her sister, Jody, who has been wrongfully accused of murder after their old high school coach, a local hero, dies in a suspicious car crash. But maybe Jody isn't so innocent after all. The police are convinced that Jody was having an affair with the married coach and killed him out of jealousy. As Anna investigates with the help of her childhood friend Cooper Bolden, an Afghan War veteran with a secret of his own, she slowly peels back the facade of her all-American town and discovers that no one is telling the truth about the coach, not even the people she thought she knew best. When the town rallies against them, threatening not just Jody's liberty but both sisters' lives, Anna resolves to do everything she can to save her sister and defend the only family she has left. In her best book yet "with surprising twists and an ultimately satisfying conclusion" (Booklist), Allison Leotta, "the female John Grisham" (The Providence Journal), explores the limits of vigilante justice, the bonds of sisterhood, and the price of the truth.

        March 2, 2015
        Readers who like their legal thrillers with a heavy dose of romance will appreciate Leotta’s fourth Anna Curtis mystery (after 2013’s Speak of the Devil). Anna, a veteran sex-crimes prosecutor in Washington, D.C., has called off her wedding after the shattering discovery of her fiancé’s infidelity. Conveniently, her return to her hometown of Holly Grove, Mich., to defend her sister, Jody, from a murder charge reintroduces her to an old high school friend, Cooper Bolden, who has transformed from a “skinny boy with knobby knees” to a former Army Ranger “with a chest like a Ford 350.” Jody is accused of killing Owen Fowler, a beloved high school coach, supposedly because he wanted to break off their reputed affair. Anna wrangles permission from the Justice Department to serve as her sibling’s defense attorney, and, aided by Cooper, vigorously looks for other suspects. A melodramatic denouement won’t be to every taste. Agent: Amy Berkower, Writers House.
