Snow isn’t all that’s falling in Denver, Colorado on Christmas Eve.
A beautiful, young district attorney tumbles from her balcony to her death.
Police suspect suicide, but the DA’s sister, newspaper reporter Samantha Church, isn’t buying it.
Samantha discovers evidence linking her sister to a drug smuggling case and quickly learns she has stumbled onto a major news story. She must summon the courage to not only face a cartel of criminals, but her own fears and shortcomings when she is confronted by the inescapable specter of a far greater enemy—her addiction to alcohol. Samantha’s dependency has not only cost her job at a major metropolitan daily, but, worse, custody of her daughter, April.
Samantha pursues her sister’s killers, maneuvering through a minefield of intrigue deliberately set out to divert her from the truth. Despite being betrayed, physically beaten and facing the possibility of sharing her sister’s fate, Samantha refuses to stop her investigation. However, when the killers threaten to harm April, Samantha realizes that, for her daughter’s sake, she can no longer continue the investigation on her own. She knows she must swallow her pride and turn to her ex-husband and police detective, Jonathan Church, for help.
Can Samantha ultimately prevail—find her sister’s killer, write the story of her career, confront her drinking problem, and finally begin to change her life, or will she and April become the killer’s next victims?
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
Wow… A well thought out mystery wrapped around a denying alcoholic’s struggle. A powerful, thought-provoking story. The struggle was so well written that you wonder if the author was a recovering alcoholic. She got into the main character’s mind so well, it left you speechless.
What a great book. This is my second read from Betta Ferrendelli. She is a brilliant writer. The stories are written with depth and full of intrigue, mystery and emotion. I will look forward to more from Betta.
WOW! This book is so explosive and compelling, I skipped my workout just to sit and read thirsting to find out what would happen next. Those who love great thrillers and mysteries, place Betta Ferrendelli on your to be notified list of her upcoming new works; she is truly an amazing author who deserves due recognition for work well done.
The writer of this book takes several story lines and intermingles them perfectly. The story of a struggling writer whose sister’s death leaves many more questions than answers. It addresses corruption, drug smuggling along with alcoholism and intertwines the storylines with perfection. I couldn’t put down this book.
Wonderful story that deserves the five stars all the way through! From the first page to the last I read it non-stop even taking it with me from room to room! This author has talent and compassion and it shows in her art. Thank you for a good time well spent.
