Summary

Summary

One cold November night when Kat Kominski was fifteen years old, she and some friends held up a convenience store. In the heat of the moment, one of the others shot and killed an off-duty cop moonlighting as a security guard. Kat and her pals fled the scene in a panic, and no one was caught.

Thirteen years later, Kat--now Kate White--has built a new life for herself. Now a single mom with a nine-year-old son, she works as a prosecutor in the Philadelphia DA's office. But her dark past returns to haunt her when she walks into court one day and has a devastating encounter with a prisoner, Mario Castellanos, one of her companions from that terrible night.

Hardcore criminal Mario is facing a possible sentence of twenty years. He lets Kate know that he is counting on her, his old friend turned prosecutor, to make sure he goes free instead. If Kate doesn't do what he wants, he'll claim she was the one who killed the off-duty cop.

Kate is in a bind: If the truth about her past gets out, she stands to lose everything, including her son. But she can't do what Mario wants, either. As Mario ups his demands, blackmailing and terrorizing her, she is forced to turn for protection to a sexy homicide detective, Tom Braga, who suspects her of...something. The two clash repeatedly as Tom keeps digging into her past, trying to learn the truth.

Then another, far more menacing, threat rears its head, and Kate realizes that her life--and her son's--are in terrible danger. Frantic, she sees that she has nowhere to turn. Except, maybe, to Tom....


Summary

When she was 15, Kate and her friends robbed a convenience store, an event that ended with the shooting death of a security guard. Now, sixteen years later and working in the district attorney's office, she gets the shock of her life when she learns she must prosecute one of her childhood friends from that fateful night so long ago. When he turns up dead, Kate herself is the prime suspect.

Booklist Review

Single mother Kate White has had to travel a long, hard road to become a prosecutor in Philadelphia. A foster child, she had trouble with the law, culminating in a brutal incident at a Baltimore convenience store involving her friends. The birth of her son Ben changed her, and she put herself through college and law school, only to, once again, end up at the wrong place at the wrong time with the same wrong friends. During a routine trial, chaos erupts as the defendant attempts to escape, and Kate is taken hostage. After the murder and mayhem, Kate walks away a hero, but Detective Tom Braga senses that there is more to her story. Tom almost lost his brother in the melée, and although he is very attracted to Kate, he is determined to find out what she's concealing. Guilty is truly a pleasure as the ever-popular and prolific Robards gives her readers an especially exciting, top-notch tale of romantic suspense.--Engelmann, Patty Copyright 2008 Booklist


Publisher's Weekly Review

In this scintillating romantic thriller from bestseller Robards (Obsession), Kate White, a single mother and Philadelphia ADA, is embarrassed in court when her cellphone goes off during a trial. Just then the defendant pulls out a pistol and starts shooting, killing the judge. The terror-stricken Kate fears for her life and the future of her young son, Ben, should she die in the melee. After being taken hostage, Kate escapes, supposedly by killing her captor. Kate soon discovers that her past as a troubled foster child has caught up to her. Someone tries to break into her home, while someone else follows her, threatening her and Ben. Det. Tom Braga, who investigates the courtroom shooting, is firmly convinced that Kate didn't kill her captor. Kate's vulnerability appeals to Tom's protective nature, drawing the pair together in a heated affair. Robards once again shows her flair for coupling first-rate suspense with multidimensional characters. (Apr.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
