My Review

Connie Moore a prison psychologist has lost her reputation after her report was blamed for releasing an offender who went on to rape a woman. She relocated and changed her surname to Summers and set up in private practice, but her past comes back to haunt her when she becomes embroiled in supporting Stephanie, who had also changed her name from Jenna and is under witness protection. There are many complexities within this story but they all link up in the end. This book required concentration because of the complexities of the plot, but I like that. I would recommend this to anyone who reads the crime thriller genre and will be reading more from Sam Carrington in the future.
