Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown delivers a riveting thriller where a conflict of conscience for a former football star and an ambitious state prosecutor swiftly intensifies into a fight for their lives.
 
Former Super Bowl MVP quarterback Zach Bridger hasn’t seen his ex-wife, Rebecca Pratt, for some time—not since their volatile marriage imploded—so he’s shocked to receive a life-altering call about her. Rebecca has been placed on life support after a violent assault, and he—despite their divorce—has medical power-of-attorney. Zach is asked to make an impossible choice: keep her on life support or take her off of it. Buckling under the weight of the responsibility and the glare of public scrutiny, Zach ultimately walks away, letting Rebecca's parents have the final say.
 
Four years later, Rebecca's attacker, Eban—the scion of a wealthy family in Atlanta—gets an early release from prison. The ludicrous miscarriage of justice reeks of favoritism, and Kate Lennon, a brilliant state prosecutor, is determined to put him back behind bars. Rebecca’s parents have kept her alive all these years, but if her condition were to change—if she were to die—Eban could be retried on a new charge: murder.
 
It isn’t lost on Zach that in order for Eban to be charged with Rebecca’s murder, Zach must actually be the one to kill her. He rejects Kate’s legal standpoint but can’t resist their ill-timed attraction to each other. Eban, having realized the jeopardy he’s in, plots to make certain that neither Zach nor Kate lives to see the death of Rebecca—and the end of his freedom.

Brown is one of the few romantic suspense writers who almost always uses a make her central narrator, but it works, probably because Brown is such a gifted writer. In her latest, a man learns that he has been left the medical power of attorney for his ex-wife, who is on life support after a violent attack. Zach Bridger is already in the public eye because of his career as an MVP quarterback – the story about his ex wife and his control over her fate becomes a news sensation. He feels his only choice is to step back and let his former in-laws make the choice about their daughter. Four years later, she’s still on life support, and her attacker, wealthy and influential Eban, is released from prison after serving only four years. And Zach must face the fact that for Eban to be charged with murder, his ex, Rebecca will have to die, and Zack will have to be the one who “kills” her. A complex and deliciously dark mystery
