Internationally bestselling author Alex Kava delivers a searing thriller of one woman’s encounter with her past which could jeopardize her future
Melanie Starks has never lived life by the rules. She and her seventeen-year-old son, Charlie, have been running one con job or another for as long as she can remember, justifying the petty crimes as the necessary survival moves of a single mother. But Melanie is ready to give it up. Then Jared Barnett reappears in her life. Fresh out of prison after serving five years of a life sentence for murder, Jared is released on a technicality that by no means proves his innocence. And he’s feeling more invincible than ever. He has the perfect plan for a big score and he needs Melanie’s help. But everything goes terribly wrong. Only one thing is clear: A line has been crossed. Suddenly there’s no turning back, and there is nothing left to lose.

After Jared Barnett is released from death row on a technicality, he hooks up with his sister, Melanie Starks, and her son, Charlie. Jared and Charlie are on a crime spree when in "one false move" they rob a bank, shoot people, and involve Melanie, who is driving the getaway car. Can their luck get any worse? Maggie-Meg Reed narrates this story of murder, mayhem ,and kidnapping with a single voice that pulls at listeners, dragging them into the action. The lack of differentiation between characters keeps the violence and cold-heartedness that pervade this work at a distance.
