When Vanessa Jessup returns home from her sophomore year of college, her mother, Police Chief Brill Jessup, is stunned to see that she’s pregnantby one of her professors. Brill is glad Vanessa rejected the father’s abortion ultimatum, but hurt that she ignored her upbringing and angry that the professor has disappeared without a trace.

When Vanessa Jessup returns home from her sophomore year of college, her mother, Police Chief Brill Jessup, is stunned to see that she’s pregnant—by one of her professors. Brill is glad Vanessa rejected the father’s abortion ultimatum, but hurt that she ignored her upbringing and angry that the professor has disappeared without a trace.

But that’s not all Brill’s got on her plate. One of her detectives has been killed, and the attacker has threatened to come for her next. When a second cop is wounded, public criticism mounts as Brill attempts to stay alive long enough to catch the perp. And she’s trying to find that deadbeat dad as Vanessa struggles to make decisions about her future. The killer seems to be everywhere and nowhere. How can a police chief—and a mother—do her job with her life on the line? In a show of grace under pressure, Brill will manage to have the last word, even if it kills her.

Kathy Herman returns to Sophie Trace in this page-turner about God’s power to heal the broken.
