Bestselling author Sandra Brown weaves a tale of murder, passion, and intrigue in the pristine corridors of the White House.

Barrie Travis is not famous: she's just a damn good reporter stuck at a low-budget television station. Then, her old friend and now First Lady calls her to investigate the supposed SIDS death of her baby. Stunned by grief after the loss of her infant son, the President's wife hints that her child may have murdered.

Blind to everything but finding the truth, Barrie delves into the private lives of the president and his wife and uncovers dark and terrible secrets that will test her ethics, her patriotism, and her courage. With the help of Gray Bondurant, a mysterious former presidential aide, this story could topple the presidency and change the course of history.

In this fast-moving political thriller, Barrie must fight powerful forces that want nothing more than to see the scandalous past-and a certain young reporter-dead and buried.
