The terror attack that shocked the world ... A decades-old murder about to be solved .... A gripping new thriller from the author of the bestselling The Girl Who Was Taken.
Releasing on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, Charlie Donlea's exciting new suspense novel sees a victim from the North Tower make her voice heard two decades on...
Avery Mason, host of American Events, knows her latest story - a murder mystery laced with sex, tragedy, and betrayal - is ratings gold. With new technology the New York medical examiner's office has made its first successful identification of a 9/11 victim in years. The twist- the victim, Victoria Ford, had been accused of murder at the time of her death. In a chilling last call from the North Tower, Victoria had begged her sister to prove her innocence.
Twenty years later, Emma Ford is convinced that Avery's connections and fame will help do just that. And Avery, hoping to negotiate a more lucrative contract, goes into investigative overdrive. Victoria had been having an affair with a successful novelist, found hanging from the balcony of his Catskills mansion. The rope, the bedroom, the entire crime scene was covered in Victoria's DNA.
But the twisted puzzle of Victoria's private life belies a much darker mystery. And there are other players in the game who are interested in Avery's own past - one she has kept secret from both the TV executives and her audience. A secret she thought was dead and buried . . .
