ABOUT THE BOOK

A heart-racing new cat and-and-mouse thriller from USA Today bestselling and multiple award-winning author Hank Phillippi Ryan.

One wrong word can ruin your life. And no one knows that better than savvy crisis management expert Arden Ward.

Problem is—she’s now forced to handle a devastating crisis of her own. She’s unfairly accused of having an affair with a powerful client—and now her life and dreams are about to crash and burn. Then Arden is given an ultimatum. She has two weeks to save her career and her reputation.

Is Cordelia Bannister the answer to her prayers?

Cordelia needs help for her husband Ned, a Boston real estate mogul. Though he was recently acquitted in a fatal drunk driving accident, his reputation is ruined, and the fallout is devastating not only to the Bannisters’ lives, but the lives of their two adorable children.

Arden devotes her skill and determination—and maybe her final days on the job—to helping this shattered family, but soon, revelations begin to emerge about what really happened the night of the accident. And then—another car crash throws Ned back into the spotlight.

This case is Arden’s final chance to protect her own future and clear her name. But the more she tries to untangle the truth, the more she’s haunted by one disturbing question—what if she’s also protecting a killer?

Gossip. Lies. Rumors. Words like that can hurt you. And Arden knows the reality. Sometimes one wrong word can even kill.
