A determined, down on her luck, mom caring for her handicapped son becomes entangled in a murderous conspiracy to keep a twenty year-old secret buried in this blistering thriller, set during the tragic aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, from NYT #1 bestselling author Andrew Gross, in the mold of his previous bestseller, No Way Back.

While driving along a suburban back road, Hilary Blum, who’s just lost her job and whose deadbeat husband has left her alone to care for her son with Asperger’s, witnesses a freakish accident. A car ahead of her careens down a hill and slams into a tree. Rushing to help, she discovers the driver dead—and a satchel stuffed with a half a million dollars.

That money could prevent her family’s ruin and keep her special needs son in school. In an instant, this honest, achieving woman who has always done the responsible thing makes a decision that puts her in the center of maelstrom of unforeseeable consequences and life-threatening recriminations—a terrifying scheme involving a twenty-year-old murder, an old woman who’s life has been washed out to sea, and a powerful figure bent to keep the secret that can destroy him hidden.
