Stella Cataloni, District Attorney, has never lost a case. She has convicted every criminal who crossed her doorstep - except the one who stole her family and marked her for life. Stella's parents died in afire when she was seventeen. She managed to rescue her brother but sustained appalling scars. Stella remembers little about that night of the fire and has no idea who caused it, but now she knows she must confront it. Her privatelife's a mess; she's divorcing her husband and falling in love with her divorce attorney; the least she can do is unravel her haunting past. But in doing so she puts her reputation at stake and her life in jeapardy.
