Everyone has a face they want to hide. For you and me, we hide what happened to us when were kids. For others, they hide their duplicitous acts.
Julia Gooden is on a story but the story turns personal when her husband/lawyer District Attorney David Tanner is caught in the crossfire. Set in Detroit and mafia type crime, Julia is a determined to get to the truth. The thing about truth is it always cost something. Trying to protect her husband and son, she uncovers more to the story than she thought possible. It is a case of can you handle the truth.
I think what makes her character compelling is that she does not shy away from her desire to find the story and to bring justice to the forefront no matter what the cost. She balances her career, her marriage and her families well being. She is currently estranged from her husband but together they are working to come together. As her husband is seriously injured, she with the help of Detective Raymond Navarro of the Detroit PD who is also a former boyfriend who would do anything for her, try to uncover who would try to kill her husband. Even though Julia knows it is Nick Rossi who has come to trial and David Tanner has a key witness to finally put Rossi behind bars, she still needs to find the proof before his trial is thrown out.
This is a fast paced thriller that has many turns and surprises. Relationship tensions drive the plot that keep you turning the pages.
