DAMNED BY A LIE...
When a Texas drug-dealer is charged with a grisly murder of three teenagers, police officer Diane Wellman knows the case is built on a lie. She was first on the scene. She saw.
And now those who framed an innocent man have set Diane up for a fall as well--
one that could cost the idealistic young woman not only her freedom, but her life.

CONDEMNED BY THE TRUTH...
Political activist Gail Rubin, crucified for the crimes of others, has been nursing revenge behind the walls of New York's Sundown prison for eighteen years. She finds common
ground with her desperate new cell mate. Neither has anything left to lose.
They want justice. And they'll risk everything to get it...

DRIVEN BY VENGEANCE...
Between escape and absolution, Diane and Gail are on the lam, testing the boundaries of trust. Fugitives, they struggle to stay one step ahead of the law as they journey through a nightmare of revenge and redemption in their quest to settle the score.
There's no turning back.

"Moves faster than a speeding police car."
--Entertainment Weekly

"Thelma and Louise are a couple of schoolgirls next to the pair of heroines who tear through Kim Wozencraft's Wanted. You'll never stop rooting for them."
--Ian Spiegelman, author of Everyone's Burning
