This novel has been previously published under the title Twist of Fate.

From bestselling author Mary Jo Putney comes an emotionally charged story of a man and a woman brought together by a passion for justice, a hunger for change, and an imperfect process.

When lawyer Val Covington receives a windfall and leaves her corporate career to practice "do-gooder law," her assistant offers to come with her - if Val will look into the case of Kendra's former lover, who is on Death Row for a crime he didn't commit.

Val agrees, but she can't do it alone. She finds help in Rob Smith, her landlord, who is as capable as he is mysterious.

If justice is an imperfect process, so is falling in love. Val and Rob are drawn together as they fight to save an innocent man's life, but can they overcome their fears to build a lasting future?

It's an emotionally-charged story of honor, courage, and the healing power of love, with complex, multi-layered characters - a book readers will remember long after the last page is turned."
