The last woman Tanner Landis is prepared to see is the one he must save.
Fairlington County detective Tanner Landis and his partner, Rutherford "Bel" Belichek have worked several Northern Virginia criminal cases later tried by their colleague, Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Maggie Frye. In Proof of Innocence, Maggie was drawn to a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains to solve the case of what could be a serial killer. In Price of Innocence, it is Bel who has to risk everything – his friendships, his reputation, his career, his heart and his life -- to solve a murder in Fairlington. Premise of Innocence is Tanner's story.
It's also the story of Allison Northcutt, a cousin to both Maggie and Jamie Chancellor, founder of the Sunshine Foundation. Tanner and Ally, an artist who married into a Maryland police family, have a history, and now it’s his mission to keep her alive. Because someone just took a shot at her.
