Chicago ADA Olivia Kincaid was dedicated to getting violent
criminals off the streetsuntil a brutal assault
nearly took her life. Now, with her world shattered, she
retreats to her father's Colorado ranch, hoping to reclaim
some lost piece of herself.
Even here she can't feel safe, thoughbecause her
father has created a work-release program that allows
convicted felons to roam freely about the ranch. But when
one of the men arouses a desire she thought was long dead,
her deepest convictions are turned upside down. Six years
ago, Hank Elliot was imprisoned for a crime he says he
didn't commit. Olivia has heard countless criminals claim
their innocence. Still, something about the proud,
determined man makes her want to believe him.
But when a local woman is found murdered and suspicion
falls on Hank, not even Olivia is sure whether the man
who's broken through her defenses is a cold-blooded killer.
