A letter from a dead man catapults Nichelle Clarke into the biggest story of her career...if she can stay alive long enough to report it.

Nichelle Clarke needs a big break.

With a new job and a new boss, she's under pressure to find a story that will send papers flying off the racks-and money flying in the door.

When she learns that the widow of a beloved athlete is entangled in the opioid crisis, Nichelle sets out to track her down. But the story takes a turn when her interview prospect becomes a suspect-for murder.

Detectives have found a dead body, along with a letter addressed to Nichelle. Determined to uncover the truth, she jumps into the race to find the killer-even as it turns into a police manhunt for the now-missing widow.

But this story leads Nichelle deep into a mystery where nothing is what it seems, and the truth behind a brutal murder is just the beginning.
