To everyone else, Denny Sizemore is the handsome face on a highway billboard. A man to be trusted. Respected. Reelected. To college student Neveah Ward, he is her monster.
When Neveah accuses the former mayor of a brutal rape, it’s easier for everyone not to believe her. Mayor Sizemore has lived his life in the public eye. He’s a family man. A rising star in Ohio politics. She’s a nobody with questionable motives and a shady past. Except DNA doesn’t lie, and Neveah never wavers from her story.
Lucky for her, Prosecutor Mara Brent never backs down from a worthy fight. The case will pit Mara against some of the biggest power players in the state. They soon learn Mara can’t be bought. But, she has plenty at risk in her personal life as she gears up for a nasty custody battle against her formidable ex-husband.
Mara’s willing to put her career on the line to champion Neveah. But, when the rape trial takes a shocking turn, Mara learns the path to justice could cost her what she cherishes most of all. Her son.
