McCall was a woman to envy, until she was convicted of murdering her dying mother with the very experimental drugs that boosted her rise to fame.

by Lin Wilder —

In the eyes of the world, Dr. Lindsey McCall had everything — beauty, brains and a nomination for the Nobel Prize in Medicine.

McCall was a woman to envy, until she was convicted of murdering her dying mother with the very experimental drugs that boosted her rise to fame.

When reporter Kate Townsend learned about the murder conviction and imprisonment of the renowned cardiologist, she was certain that this would be the biggest story she had ever pursued.

But after her series of articles is awarded the Pulitzer Prize, Townsend is haunted by the knowledge that her newfound fame has been purchased at too high a price; she is certain that McCall is not guilty.

The governor hires a former homicide detective and criminal defense attorney to fix the escalating problems at the Huntsville Prisons recently inflamed by a lawsuit against McCall.

When Jansen’s skills quickly result in the resignation of the incompetent prison medical director, he realizes that this strange saga is just beginning.

This medical mystery weaves together the lives of two sisters with those of strangers, as each copes with loss, betrayal, jealousy and the exquisitely painful journey to forgiveness.
