For Jake, this case may hit way too close to home—and what started as a race to find Jenny could become a fight to protect Kathleen.
As the case heats up and the danger escalates, Jake is forced to examine his moral boundaries. How far is he willing to go for the woman he loves? At what cost? And what about that question that has dogged him since the beginning of the case: was there another person on the beach that night?
