In this smart, gripping thriller from USA Today bestselling author Melissa F. Miller, federal prosecutor Aroostine Higgins’ most critical vulnerability is exposed.

Government records, medical equipment, elevators, security alarms … they’re all remotely controlled and monitored by computerized industrial control systems. It’s convenient, efficient, and potentially deadly.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Aroostine Higgins has put her personal life on hold to join the Department of Justice’s elite Criminal Division. She’s about to prosecute a major bribery trial—one that could make or break her career.

But everything’s going wrong.

Her pretrial motion vanishes from the federal court’s electronic docketing system. Her apartment catches fire. Routine dental surgery turns into a near-death experience. By the time Aroostine realizes her string of bad luck is anything but random, the stakes are greater than the outcome of a high-profile court case.

Determined to win at any cost, a hidden enemy threatens to destroy her—and the only man she’s ever loved—unless she can stop him. Now, it’s personal.

  • Good, but...

    By Alana Neuron
    I'm frustrated. In spite of all the things I like about this book, if you take that away it's just another story about a woman having to let go of her ambition and give up on her dreams in order to save her marriage. It's never the husband who has to let go of something in this kind of plot, he gets to follow his dreams and keep his wife.

  • Thriller with deep wisdom

    I was surprised that I loved this book. I didn't know what to expect but kept reading. And it got better and better. The main character, Aroostine, brings the wisdom of the forest, nature and native family roots to her career as a Justice Department attorney. She's idealistic, tough, resilient and compassionate. My kind of woman. I look forward to more of her adventures.

    I very much enjoyed this book. I think it was the quality of the writing more than anything else. The story is good and interesting, and frankly I found myself tearing up more than once. I think you've found a good use for the wonderful education and experiences you've had.
