A car accident shattered the ankle and first marriage of probation officer Gillian Jones. In her mid-thirties, she’s remarried and walking again – albeit without high heels. Her life would be perfect, if only she could get pregnant.
There is a child she’d love to adopt: He’s the son of her 17-year-old probation client, Jessica Coffers, who abandoned him when he was a newborn baby. Even though Jessica is now raising the rescued infant, some people in Bend Brook, Nebraska still consider her a cold-blooded killer and they are pressuring the county attorney to file additional charges. Jessica’s guardians want to put the baby up for adoption to avoid any further controversy. Gillian and her husband believe they would be a perfect match for the child.
Bob Johanson has cancer and needs some answers about his deceased daughter before he dies. Over twenty years ago someone attempted to rape his daughter and used her childhood nickname of JoJo. Now Bob wants Gillian to identify the would-be rapist. Gillian considers the request a lost cause until details of the assault reveal that Bend Brook might be harboring a serial rapist. When the county attorney is murdered, Jessica is the prime suspect, but Gillian knows the killer sought old police reports that would identify the rapist. As Gillian struggles to uncover the truth, she finds her own life in danger.
