The Last Time She Saw Him

— I —

Julia Gooden remembers nothing about the worst night of her life. Thirty years ago, her nine-year-old brother Ben — the person who promised he would always protect her — was abducted from the room they shared. Try as she might to recall any clue or detail, there is a black hole where Julia’s memories of that terrible event should be.

— II —

Julia Gooden is up against the city’s most devious criminal — and her own painful past. After a courthouse bombing kills the key witness set to testify against Detroit crime boss Nick Rossi ... and critically injures Julia’s district attorney husband ... Julia must follow a trail of blackmail, payback, and political ambition, in her effort to pin Rossi for the attack. Julia has risked her career before, but this time innocent lives — including her children’s — hang in the balance.
