A long-buried family secret and a chance encounter with an estranged sibling force police detective Jimmy Vega to confront his deepest fears in this gripping new mystery by award-winning author Suzanne Chazin . . .

It's spring in Lake Holly, New York, a time of hope and renewal. But not for the Hispanics in this picturesque upstate town. Raids and deportations are on the rise, spurring fear throughout the community.

Tensions reach the boiling point when the body of the district attorney's Brazilian-born wife is found on a wooded lot. An eerie text to her husband and other clues suggest that agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement confronted her with an order to remove her from the country. Yet the DA had no idea his bride was undocumented and ICE has no record of her arrest.

Jimmy Vega, convinced of ICE's involvement, pushes to be assigned to the case. But there is another Vega already assigned, one Jimmy hasn't seen in years: his half-sister Michelle, the child who caused his father to leave his mother. Now an ICE agent, Michelle tells Vega the law is the law. As a cop, Vega knows he's supposed to agree. And yet, his heart tells him he needs to dig deeper, not just into the case but into his past, to a childhood terror only Michelle can unlock.

While Vega searches for the demon from his youth, he discovers one uncomfortably close by. It's a race against the clock with lives on the line. And a choice Vega never thought he'd have to make. Obey the law. Or obey his conscience. There's no margin for error . . .
