Publisher's Summary

In the Missouri Ozarks, some things aren't talked about...even abuse. But prosecutor Elsie Arnold is determined to change that. When she is assigned to prosecute a high-profile incest case in which a father is accused of abusing his three young daughters, Elsie is ready to become the Ozarks' avenging angel. But as Elsie sinks her teeth into the case, everything begins to turn sour. The star witness goes missing; the girls refuse to talk about their father, who terrorizes the courtroom from the moment he enters; and Elsie begins to suspect that their tough-as-nails mother has ulterior motives. To make matters worse, Elsie receives gruesome threats from local extremists, warning her to mind her own business. While Elsie swears not to let a sex offender walk, she realizes the odds - and maybe the town - are against her, and her life begins to crumble. But amid all of the conflict, the safety of three young girls hangs in the balance.

Great Read!!

This book deals with the sexual abuse of teenage girls, even within their own families
It is a “feel good “ story when the abusers are brought to trial & convicted against all odds.

Exciting listen!

This was an exciting book and very well narrated! I really enjoyed it. I listen while I am at work and was tempted to listen while at home but I wanted something to look forward to at work so I held off.
