Obsession leads to lies…
When air force captain Luke Trussell opens his door one Sunday morning, he’s shocked to find the police—and even more shocked when they charge him with rape. He knows he made a mistake in judgment the night before, but he certainly didn’t force his attentions on the woman who’s been stalking him for months.
Problem is…Kalyna Harter has the bruises—and the DNA evidence—to make her claim convincing.
And lies can lead to murder.
Determined to isolate Luke, Kalyna goes to victims’ rights advocate Ava Bixby of The Last Stand, hoping Ava will help put Luke behind bars. But Ava soon realizes she’s defending the wrong victim.
Problem is…switching her support to Luke could be dangerous—especially when she falls for him. Because Kalyna won’t tolerate losing the man she wants to anyone. Least of all Ava…
The story is chilling because it’s pretty easy to see how a manipulator like the villain could convince the police and DA’s office that she’d actually been raped. And nearly ruin her victim’s life in the process…and having worked with individuals who come in with false stories, trying to weed out the lies that they’ve convinced themselves with…fast paced, good summer read.
