Police officer Abby Dawson has seen the worst of society, and not just at work. Her ex-husband has wrested her daughter away from her in a bitter custody battle. The job she once loved has become a chore – the world isn’t safer, and there’s no joy in her life.
One night a man’s innocent blood changes Roxi and Abby forever. One searches for justice; the other finds herself on the run until a first edition of The Great Gatsby catches up with her. Will the power of forgiveness set them free, or will they both remain bound by guilt?
CJ Darlington is releasing her sophomore book in March and all signs point towards it being a profound and layered story. This is definitely on my “to-read” list, especially since it integrates some of my favourite classics.
