About the Book

Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department undercover detective, Julia Barnes is assigned to a West Hollywood crisis center where two women have been brutally raped and murdered. In order to snare the killer she is to pose as a sexy, southern divorcée who is a newcomer to the area. Her ruse works all too well, and before she knows it, she unknowingly comes in contact with the killer and becomes his target. Julia’s effectiveness as a detective is compromised when she becomes emotionally embroiled with a caller to the center who she suspects is being abused by a family member. Being a happily married mother of twin girls, the caller’s plight touches Julia and leaves her repulsed and horrified. Worst of all is the vague feeling of familiarity that Julia gets from the caller; a feeling that disrupts her concentration and not only jeopardizes her safety but also threatens her sanity. Struggling to divide her attention between the caller and her original mission, Julia catapults toward a tragic conclusion that shatters previously held perceptions and tests her emotional fortitude as the pieces of a puzzling chain of events become much too clear.
