Defeating odds and ignoring well-meant advice is her specialty, so when fledgling reporter Jonie Waters follows a news tip and discovers her girlhood friend's mangled body, nothing can dissuade her from setting out to find the murderer. Though Jonie attracts the suspicions of local police as she finds herself in the middle of other related crimes, she continues her investigation, risking her job, tentative family ties, and the chance of romance with the alluring lead investigator.
