Sympathy Between Humans
On the streets of Minneapolis, Sarah has worked everything from vice to missing persons. But six months after the death of a small-time criminal in rural Minnesota, Sarah is still protecting the identity of a killer. And now, a zealous D.A.'s investigator has come to town, determined to make an arrest.Surrounded by colleagues who know her to be a murder suspect, Sarah keeps her demons at bay by involving herself in the troubles of strangers. As she juggles two very different cases - a young man missing from a deeply troubled family, an unlicensed doctor providing medical care for the underclass - she must strike a delicate balance between professional honor and personal feelings. Even more is at stake in her cat-and-mouse game with the investigator who wants to end her career. As she crosses one ethical line after another, Sarah increasingly fears that a misstep on her part will end not only in her disgrace, but in the death of one of those she has promised herself she will protect.
