When Maxine Revere was a high school senior, her best friend was murdered and their mutual friend, Kevin O'Neal, was accused of the crime. Kevin's guilt wasn't proven, but Max and Kevin's friendship never recovered and Max moved across the country shortly afterward. She never looked back. Thirteen years later, Max, now a successful investigative reporter, returns home to attend Kevin's funeral. The police say it was suicide, but Kevin's little sister doesn't believe it. Nor does she believe that Kevin committed murder all those years ago, and she begs Max to help clear Kevin's name. For Max, digging into Kevin's life means facing demons from her own past, as well as crossing a stubborn detective who wants Max to stay the hell away from his case. Soon it becomes terrifyingly clear that someone will do whatever it takes to make sure the truth stays buried. Allison Brennan, author of the New York Times bestselling Lucy Kincaid series in mass market, debuts in hardcover with a dynamic new character in Max Revere and an absolutely riveting thriller"-- Provided by publisher.

I disliked the voice of the reader so much that I was unable to listen to the book, although the plot intrigued me. The reader was an Eliza Foss. Did not get through the first disc. Poor.

Max reminds me of Freddie Lounds from the show Hannibal. But only nobler and better. Freddie had a desperation around her that makes her not very likeable. Max's such a bitch but you can't help but admire and respect her for her strong determination and ambition. Especially since she's the ultimate woman (or Wonder Woman as Nick had called her) many of us want to be: strong, independent, responsible, smart etc etc etc.

The story started out really slow for me. Until Nick entered the scene. Then it really picked up and was one twisty ride. Would've liked to see maybe one or two extra chapters describing the aftermath and what became of our reporter and cop duo.
