About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
When commercial actress Christi Newsom takes an early morning shuttle flight from Washington, DC to New York, she reminisces about the events of her 20th wedding anniversary celebration that took place the day before and what might have sparked her attorney husband, Jack, to become a suspect in a brutal murder when someone falsely calls in the license number of his red BMW that sped away from the scene. Christi has a best friend, Mimi Acta, an artist, whose only child, Bryant, died after a car crash. The car was driven by his drunken father. Mimi embraced her friend's intervention and incisive understanding. She found strength to overcome the emotional current that led to her languid obscurity. But a few years later, her imperative need to maintain wholeness is compromised when she is brutally raped, and subsequently, rejected by her husband, Alfredo. She resurfaces after some counseling stronger than ever and is determined to put her marriage behind her after she sets out to save her friend, Christi, from self-destruction when get-even sex years earlier threatens her idyllic marriage.
