The third novel in the much-loved Cora Baxter Mysteries series from acclaimed broadcaster and bestselling author of The Perfect Couple, Jackie Kabler.

Investigative journalist Cora Baxter is on her way home after a challenging but successful week, resulting in the suspension of a corrupt police officer. Looking forward to a quiet night in, the last thing she expects on her drive home is for a young woman to fall from a bridge and land on her car bonnet.

With a history of depression, Leanne's death is ruled as suicide and the case is closed. But something doesn't quite add up for Cora and when a visit to Leanne's family home leaves her with more questions than answers, she begins to dig a little deeper.

As Cora draws closer to the heart of story, she threatens to unravel the web of lies that have permeated a powerful establishment. But the closer she gets, the higher the stakes and soon it's more than just the truth on the line . . .
