Melanie Vargas is a hardworking, hotshot Latina federal prosecutor. Her home life is a bit chaotic, since she just caught her husband in an affair, although she is still trying to work things out, if only for her baby daughter's sake. One evening she takes the child out on an innocent stroll and walks right into a crime scene: a wealthy former fellow prosecutor has been murdered. Melanie knows that with her personal problems she should stay away from what promises to be a demanding, high-profile case. Yet it's a career-making case, and she aggressively signs on, only to be led into a race for her life against a dark, sadistic killer who seems to always be one step ahead of her.

Professional reviews

"Michele Martinez's taut, crisp debut combines deft word choices with a riveting story line, creating euphonious dialogue that is perfect for Isabel Keating's expert narration. With Keating's unique voices, character development is honed to an art form. Melanie, a young federal prosecutor, is the gutsy, strong-willed Latina heroine who has not quite left behind her poverty-stricken Brooklyn roots and the tragedy that tore apart her parents' marriage. Secondary characters include gang leader Slice; Melanie's sister, Linda, a Latina princess; FBI Agent Dan O'Reilly, whose deep, confident, resonant voice never falters, even during high-speed chases; and Bernadette, the boss from hell. K.A.T. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine"
