There's a thin line between love and hate
For Jay Hutchin, the line blurs on a sultry night in a cheap motel on Tango Key. One moment's jealous rage is all it takes for the esteemed judge to murder Diane Jackson, a beautiful starlet whose fatal mistake was to underestimate her married lover's devotion - and the depth of his jealousy.
Between success and ruin
Having made a name for herself taking on high-profile cases, defense attorney Kit Parrish has everything to lose this time around. Hired to defend the innocent suspect in the Jackson murder, Kit grows increasingly distracted by her brother's unsolved disappearance a decade ago - and her young son's bizarre behavior, triggered by voices only he can hear.
Between life and death
On the verge of becoming U.S. attorney general, Jay Hutchin is quietly frantic, bent on keeping Kit Parrish from clearing her client's name - and determined to avoid the accusing gaze of Kit's son. The little boy can't possibly know what really happened that night on Tango Key, or can he? As the truth closes in, Jay will do anything to safeguard his future and cover his tracks. Anything. Even kill again.
