Making a Murderer meets Scandal in this story of police corruption, family secrets, and illicit affairs from bestselling author K.A. Tucker, celebrated for her “propulsive plot twists and searing seduction” (USA Today).
Noah Marshall has known a privileged and comfortable life thanks to his mother, the highly decorated chief of the Austin Police Department. But all that changes the night she reveals a skeleton that's been rattling in her closet for years, and succumbs to the guilt of destroying an innocent family's life. Reeling with grief, Noah is forced to carry the burden of this shocking secret.
Gracie Richards wasn't born in a trailer park, but after fourteen years of learning how to survive in The Hollow, it's all she knows anymore. At least here people don't care that her dad was a corrupt Austin cop, murdered in a drug deal gone wrong. Here, she and her mother are just another family struggling to survive...until a man who clearly doesn't belong shows up on her doorstep.
Despite their differences, Noah and Gracie are searching for answers to the same questions, and together, they set out to uncover the truth about the Austin Police Department's dark and messy past. But the scandal that emerges is bigger than they bargained for, and goes far higher up than they ever imagined.
What a crazy ride! I had my feelings and gut instincts about this one, but even when my instincts were correct, the subject matter was presented in such a way that I was questioning everything I knew.
This multi layered story played out as if I was part of the action. The twists and turns pushed me to read just one more chapter and soon I found I was at the end. When Noah and Gracie reunited it wasn’t for a friendly chat. Learning that these two lived lives at polar opposite sides of the spectrum soon became what pulled them together. Murder, suspense, uncertainty, and love, all funnel together creating a must read for 2018. The characters and emotions all play a key role in this story, feeding off each to create the perfect balance and yet again another KA Tucker favorite.
