“A suspense-filled, gritty thriller packed full of twists and turns.” - A Wishing Shelf Book Review
In the heart of Washington, DC, the unimaginable unfolds when Violet Cruz levels an explosive accusation at U.S. Representative Alan Barclay, branding him "the spawn of a Martian whore" as she opens fire. And when the smoke clears and she lay dead in a growing pool of her own blood, a consensus forms swiftly: Violet's grip on reality had slipped into the realm of delusion, just another conspiracy theory woven into the city's fabric.
Amid the ensuing media frenzy, Violet’s cousin turns to the unyielding resolve of Private Investigator Rebecca Marte. Even Rebecca, however, hesitates as the skepticism of the masses is the only reasonable explanation. And yet, an ember of intrigue remains in her mind, fanned by the abruptness of Violet's descent into unreality.
As the dust settles, Rebecca is faced with a pivotal question: is Violet’s erratic behavior a sign of the times or a clever veil for a calculated political assassination? But long before she has the facts, she’s forced to gamble the life of a good friend based on the little she knows and all that she suspects.
