For Sass and her sisters, Missy and Reta, growing up was an ordeal of abuse at the hands of their mother, whose vicious attacks came suddenly and without reason. The cushion of fame has not erased her fears; a sense of foreboding, an unnamed menace, always shadows her triumphs. Sass has been able to succeed by staying close to those she loves: her sisters, and her childhood friends and business associates, Joel and Austin Crowley, who share the secrets of her traumatic childhood. With their loyal support, she has fulfilled all her dreams except one. Scarred by her brutal past, burned out by the pressures of superstardom and the demands of the road, she desperately wants what she has never had: a successful marriage, and a peaceful, unhurried life of her own. After much soul-searching, Sass makes a confidential announcement to her backers. She will do one final national tour and then retire. But without warning her careful plans begin to unravel, and the rigorous security that protects her day and night turns sloppy and lax. Her handlers begin to panic as rumors of her retirement spread. For the first time in years, Sass's life is veering dangerously out of control - and she is forced to wonder whom she can really trust.
