The world as Liz Connor knows
it comes unhinged the day the FBI arrests her mother, Betty, for a 30-
year-old murder. Liz is positive there must be a mistake—her mother
cannot be the woman of a different name wanted for robbery and murder. But to her daughter and husband's
consternation, Betty refuses to talk
and plans to plead guilty.

Former cop Caleb Adams has a
very special interest in this decades-
old case—his father was one of the
two people killed. He arrives on the scene determined to see if Betty knows the whereabouts of the rest of the anti-war gang. Presuming that neither Liz nor her family will talk to him if they know the connection, Caleb claims to
be writing a book about the case.

When Liz's house is torched and
a hit man tries to kill her, both Liz
and Caleb realize that there must be more to this story than what's been revealed. Who wants Liz and her
mother dead?

This ripped-from-the-headlines
plot is extremely transfixing and
quite intense. Many of the characters
in this terrific drama have secrets
and scars that drive the fast-paced action. This multilayered and thought-
provoking thriller is pure Potter.
