Weaving Shadows

Traumatized by her recent experience as a kidnap victim, Clara Pascal is trying hard to keep the shadows of the past at bay.  Her marriage is suffering, as is her relationship with her daughter. Her criminal law caseload has slowed to a trickle, and she’s barely getting by with the family law cases her old friend, Mitch, passes to her. Then single mother Amy Dennis is found battered to death in her own home with her baby daughter sleeping upstairs. Clara is allocated to the custody case. But the parallel police investigation impinges on Clara Pascal’s life in unexpected ways: a simple family case becomes bound up in a complex web of fraud and police corruption. Convicted killer Ian Clemence becomes the number one suspect in the murder.  He’s fresh out of prison, a stalker who photographs young women.  The press is all over the case, and the police are eager to nail him.  So why does Clara believe he’s innocent? Risking her career, her reputation and her life, she sets out to prove the past has no hold on the future while a killer comes ever closer to making her the next victim…
