Kingsley Ward survived two vicious attacks, only to be targeted by the perpetrator’s partner. She should be safe—with the psychopath in prison, awaiting trial for her young husband’s murder—and by publicly swearing that she cannot identify the killer’s partner. She’d just caught a glimpse—but that’s enough. And the partner knows it!
Kingsley has worked hard, reinventing herself, away from her prestigious Philadelphia family, as head of commercial lending at a small, rural bank. Buoyed by new friends, meaningful work, and an amazing new man, she fails to grasp that honor among thieves is a real concept and that she is in eminent danger. As the star prosecution witness, her failure to testify could free two felons in unrelated cases. Or are they connected? As the plot to silence her gains momentum, Kingsley struggles toward redemption and a new life, finding allies in unexpected places. Haunted by nightmares and guilt, she vows to see justice done—that is, if she lives long enough to testify.
