Twelve years ago, a man was convicted of killing the beautiful wife of an up-and-coming orthopedic surgeon in Aspen, Colorado.
Now new evidence has emerged, forcing the district attorney to release the man convicted of the crime -- and arrest the victim's husband, Dr. Thomas Innes. No one is more shocked -- or outraged -- by this recent turn of events than Dr. Innes' new wife, Deputy DA Julie Innes . . .
Former homicide detective Cameron Lazlo is also stunned by Innes' arrest. An officer on the case, he had no doubt they'd nabbed the right guy. So it doesn't take much to convince him to team up with Julia -- even though she's bright and sexy enough to be a major distraction. But the closer they get to the truth, the riskier the investigation gets -- until there is no one left to trust except each other . . .
