Back cover copy

A mother's courage, a family's terror, and a triumph of human strength in the face of overwhelming odds...   Outside the gates of a Californian prison, Peter Morgan, released after four long years, vows to redeem himself in the eyes of the young daughters he left behind. Carl Waters, a convicted murderer, is set free at the same time. And three hundred miles south in San Francisco, police detective Ted Lee comes home to a silent house, while across town, in an exclusive Pacific Heights neighbourhood, Fernanda Barnes tries to shield her three children from the panic rising within her - four months after her husband's death she faces a mountain of debt she cannot repay. The lives of these four people come together in ways none of them could have foreseen. Fernanda, whose life had once been graced by beautiful homes, security, success and stunning wealth, encounters a devastating crime which rocks her family to its core - and brings Ted Lee into her life. A man of unshakable integrity, Lee will soon become the one person who tries to save Fernanda's family from a terrifying fate. Racing against time in the dark underbelly of the criminal world, no-one can predict where this overwhelming challenge will lead them.show more
