When fingerprints inexplicably reveal the mystery woman was murdered eighteen years earlier in San Francisco, Fey feels her career crashing down around her.
Complications in the twisted case compound when investigation reveals the woman's husband—the man convicted of killing her the first time—was released on parole only weeks before she was killed again.

With her integrity, freedom, and life on the line, Fey Croaker is about to unleash all the anger inside her—and nobody better get in her way...
