Struggling to put her life back together after almost being murdered, OR nurse Annie Collins agrees to help homicide Detective Alex Frost investigate a troubling number of patient deaths in the ICU step-down unit at her hospital. The deaths are not unexpected, but Annie and Frost wonder whether someone is helping patients die.
Assistant district attorney Angel Cisneros, Annie’s close friend and neighbor, worries about her involvement with Frost’s investigation and about her well-being after all she’s been through. His worry escalates after a person from her past contacts her. His feelings for her make dealing with the repercussions of both difficult. Will Angel go from girl-of-the-month to something serious with Annie?
Dangerous enemies are one thing Annie and Angel have in common. Angel and another ADA are the targets of tire slashing, vandalism, and harassment that may or may not be related to a trial and its verdict. Is it juvenile payback for the verdict by an unhappy friend or relative of a defendant, or is it more deadly than that?
As both Annie and Angel discover, paybacks are hell.
