One thread pulled, everything unravels.
Sheila Harrison Grant is the first African American woman ever nominated to the federal bench in Cleveland. But when her thirteen-year-old daughter Olivia shares a family secret with a well-meaning guidance counselor, she sets the wheels in motion to feed a partisan senate’s opposition, threatening her mother’s position…and both of their lives.
Once an ambitious young law student with promise, Casey Cort made the mistake of
crossing a classmate from a prominent and influential family. Now she works as an unfulfilled, faceless cog in a broken legal system.
When fate gives Casey a second chance, she has to set aside her lack of faith in justice and find the strength to fight for those with nowhere else to turn.
In this installment of the Casey Cort series, Aime Austin—a former trial lawyer in Cleveland—weaves a tale that blends the best of today’s top legal thrillers with the heart and soul of women’s fiction, in a story ripped from real-world headlines.

Very interesting and thought provoking look at the foster care system. Will be reading more of this authors books in the future!
This was a good, well written read. BUT ........ The no finish ending really put me off. I doubt that I will purchase any of her other books.
This book caught me up in the first few pages and kept me glued to the pages! I could not put it down! I work with kids who have behavior issues, some of them are in foster care and it breaks my heart. Loved this book and hope others read and become informed about what is really going on in the juvenile court system.
