by Ann Redisch Stampler

Published June 14, 2016 / Simon Pulse


A Midwestern cheerleader who’s running for her life. 

The college-bound son of a Las Vegas mobster who’s blackmailed to hunt her down.

His conscience. 

Their cross-country chase. 

Put them together, and all hell breaks loose.

“[A] searing portrayal of power, privilege, and betrayal in the hills above Los Angeles." —Publishers Weekly

"[Readers] will eagerly anticipate the accident’s entire truth revealed, especially through its surprising and gratifying ending." —VOYA
