International bestselling author Emelie Schepp introduces the enigmatic, unforgettable Jana Berzelius in this suspenseful debut novel
"A fast-paced thriller with the draw of a ninja-strong female lead and enough adrenaline to make a good night's sleep a near impossibility." --Booklist
MARKED FOR LIFE...TRAINED FOR DEATH
When the head of immigration is shot dead, suspects quickly emerge. But no one can account for the mysterious child-size fingerprints at the scene.
Public prosecutor Jana Berzelius steps in to lead the investigation. Young and brilliant but emotionally cold, Berzelius, like her famous prosecutor father, is not swayed by the devious widow or threats of blackmail. She is steely, aloof, impenetrable. Until the boy...
On a nearby shore, the drug-riddled body of a young teen is found along with a murder weapon. Reviewing his autopsy, Berzelius sees something hauntingly familiar... Carved deeply into his flesh are initials that scream child trafficking--and trigger in her a flash of recognition from her own nightmarish childhood.
Now, to protect herself and keep her dark past a secret, she must solve the crimes and find the depraved mastermind first...before the police do.
