Description
After surviving an unspeakable crime, a victim identifies a shocking attacker Lynne Jacobi gets the call a few hours before dawn. Model-turned-television celebrity Sanderalee Dawson lies on the kitchen floor of her sumptuous Manhattan apartment, hanging on to life by a tenuous thread. The victim of a savage assault, she stuns everyone when she survives and identifies her attacker. So begins a case that leads law enforcement down a twisting path of secrets, lies, and false leads. Lynne, bureau chief of the district attorney's office, is fueled by ambition and her vow to bring a brutal killer to justice. But Chief Investigator Bobby Jones isn't sure they have the right man, and he hesitates to put his legal career--and his affair with Lynne--at risk. The victim herself, as the only witness to her rape, must go up against a monster who just might get away with it. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy Uhnak including rare images from the author's estate.
