Description

Max Parkman is perfect in his mother's eyes. Until he's accused of murder.

Attorney Danielle Parkman can't deny her son's behavior has been getting worse--drugs and violent outbursts have become a frightening routine. But when she receives the diagnosis from a top-notch adolescent psychiatric facility that Max is deeply disturbed--and dangerous--it seems too devastating to accept.

Until she finds Max, weapon in hand, at the bedside of a fellow patient who has been brutally stabbed to death.

Separated from Max and trapped in a maelstrom of doubt and fear, Danielle's mothering instincts snap sharply into focus. The justice system is bearing down on her son, so she must use her years of legal experience to find out the truth, no matter what that might be. But has she, too, lost touch with reality? Is her son truly a killer?
