Florence Winslow wakes up in hospital. The nurse tells her she’s killed a man.
She can’t remember what happened. All she knows is that she was driving down a deserted country road at night when a car hurtled out of nowhere and ploughed into her. She’s lucky to be alive. The other driver was killed on impact.
Dylan Bodine, an ambitious young detective in the Torrington police department, thinks Florence was extremely lucky. Too lucky perhaps.
Something about the accident doesn’t add up.
There are too many unanswered questions. The dead driver was carrying no ID — why? There are no skid marks on the road. And what was Florence doing there in the first place? She tells the police she was visiting her in-laws, but why was she suddenly invited after so many years of estrangement?
As Dylan and his new partner, former FBI investigator Carrie Fuller, dig deeper, they discover that Florence isn’t just anyone. Her father-in-law is one of the wealthiest men in America.
He’s also dying. And with his vast fortune at stake, things are a lot murkier than they seem. At least one member of this over-privileged family is hiding a dangerous secret . . . and will go to any lengths to keep that secret hidden.
