When everyone has a secret, the real mystery is knowing when to tell.
Investigative reporter Charlotte McNally is an expert at keeping things confidential, but suddenly everyone has something to hide—and even Charlie realizes it's possible to know too much.
Her latest television scoop—an expose of a dangerous car scam, complete with stakeouts, high-speed chases and hidden-camera footage—is ratings gold. Now, in the prime time of her journalism career, it seems like Charlie's dreams are about to come true. If she can just balance her career and her upcoming wedding—perhaps she can really have it all.
But soon Charlie's personal and professional lives are put on a terrifying collision course. Her fiance is privy to information about ugly phone calls at an elite private school, threats that are suddenly turning deadly. There's a mysterious death. And then—another. Her soon-to-be stepdaughter may be in danger. Her fiance comes under suspicion. Then Charlie's career takes a turn she never could have predicted.
Charlie was starting to believe in second chances, but now she must face the chilling reality: revenge, extortion, family secrets, and murder may leave her alone again—or even dead.
